Hi there,

I was sold a 'Nyererei Flameback' trio (1 male, 2 females) but have had alot of trouble trying to find information about this species on the internet. Does this species even exist?
I have attached some pictures of the fish so that someone could help me to identify what it is?
Both females currently have baby fish in their mouths. Exciting times!! :D



1. Young Male
2. Young Male again
3. Female
4. Male when he is older (and more relaxed!)

Thanks!! :thumb:

He is still young.. is there any chance he might change as he gets older??? I have noticed that his head has alot more blue as he is growing??

The last photo has a tint of red on top which could mean he's in development.
Haplochromis sp. "flameback" does not have vertical barring. To me it looks like a Pundamilia nyererei got together with a Haplochromis "fire" or maybe even with a Haplochromis sp. #44, but that's just a wild guess.

Look through the Victorian cichlid profiles on this site and you'll see what I mean.

looks like a nyererie/fulu hybrid to me.

The fish actually looks more fulu like than nyererie.

Very pretty though...
