My dominant male. Largest in the tank. I've checked out many pictures but can seem to pinpoint it. Thanks.

Think you have a Malawi Hap and a cracker. Not Aulonocara but a good fish. Kind of stuggling on an exact ID so many Mallawi Haps I am pretty sure I have seen this one (but not kept it) but my memory is not what it used to be. :oops: :)

All the best James

It does look like a member of the Placidochromis species. Thanks!

That looks a bit odd to me, almost looks like a cross between Placidochromis electra and a Buccochromis. :-?

You know I was thinking he does look better than most Placidochromis electra.
Better fin extentions better colour. Kind of did not want to suggest hybrid as it could be a different species or regional variant. I think he may well be a Placidochromis or a different genus and not the regular electra we regularly see.
Just how big is he? electra is quite a small hap so maybe that might help jog someones memory of a big bold hap that looks a bit like regular electra.

All the best James

Here's another more recent picture. The fish is 5-6 inches long.
