I bought this hap from a reputable dealer who I get all my fish from now. He was very honest and said he bought this in as part of a breeding group and was told it was a empress hap. He was the breeding male and 6 females but my dealer was happy to sell me just the male as he wasn’t 100% he was an empress hap. He has like a rainbow colour….not all his colours are showing in the photo.

Anyone have any ideas??

thanks

It could be protomelas taeniolatus "fire blue" these have less red than your typical red empress. But if the breeder isn't 100% sure, then a guess will probably be the best you can get.

Thank you. It was a dealer who bought the fish in and was told it was a red empress he just wasn’t 100% as he felt his colour was not what he was expecting. I’d love to get everyone’s thoughts. It’s a beautiful fish either way.
