We obtained this fish along with two other haps, from a friend that works in a major pet chain store. He ordered them in as Hap Ahli. We got two EB's and this fish. This fish has a light blue, purplish, almost lavender color that fades in out at times, pale vertical stripes, with yellow fins and a yellow cap on it's head. It has all the physical traits of our other Haps, but the color has thrown us for a loop, please give us some insight...

How large were these "Ahli"? Were all 3 of these colored up? They may have been given hormones for artificial color for often makes them look very odd.

They were small, like 1 1/2". They are about 2" now. We have one that is coloring up and looking like an EB Ahli, and we gave one to a friend who was also a decent EB. This one was pale right off and has always had the yellow. The yellow seems to be getting more pronounced.

Just a guess but it may have some yellow Aulonocara blood in it.

All the best James
