Thats an Elongatus Mphanga :D
Looks alot like mine. I love my guys
There is to much yellow in it's tail for it to be a Lab. Mbamba
If it's a lone specimen it's hard to tell what sex it is. They will colour up like a male to avoid aggression. If it has mates of the same species, there is a really good chance of it being male, but you will never really know unless you witness breeding behaviour or you vent the fish.

Hi Gibbs.....when you get a chance....can you post up some pics of your female? She looks just like one of the holding females I was trying to ID recently! The only difference in mine is that she doesnt have the yellow on her tail :-?

Man it would be so awsome to know what she is :thumb: I bought her holding, so I have no clue who she mated with at the lfs but she just spit some fry on the 11th...and I'm trying to figure out what they are as well... :roll:

Thanks a bunch!!! =D>
