Aulonocara "Eureka" are suposed to be a line bred Jake. (Otter Point)S4surf said:From the picture its hard to tell but I do not believe this is a Jake. Jake's will have white corners on their tail fin, hence the name swallowtail. It does look like a eureka/german red.
The msobo looks to be accurate but you would need to get clearer pictures.
Reputable dealers lable should thier fish up right. Yes? So what were they sold as?travisbundo said:I would be okay with them being a German or Ruby Red Peacock. They look like nice fish and also a bit smaller than the species I previously thought. I bought it from a reputiable dealer at a LFS in my area so I'll just have to give it a few months and see how he develops.
The Msobo looks like good juveniles. Cant wait til the males start coloring up.
No worries mate. I for sure was not trying to be harsh to you. Just Jakes cross with German Reds and it could be one of those.travisbundo said:Was labeled as a Aulonocara Jacobfreibergi and purchased for $10. All the fish in the tank looked similiar, some had more red. This was one of the brighter, more distinct fish out of the bunch.
It was a local fish shop that gets his fish from another source every couple weeks and I was not familiar w/ peacocks at all so I wanted to get 2nd opinions.
