Hi - I was hoping someone could help me determine whether this fish is a Red Fina Piebald. I bought him from a so-so breeder when he was small and he is now about 4.5 inches. His fins have colored out nicely with a deep red color but the rest of him remains a drab gray color. He does not act much like a hap and harasses all of my other haps and peacocks (in various tanks). Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Well, he is a "Victorian Hap". I don't really see any random markings, but a male doesn't always look like a Malawi OB. Not sure if pure or a mix, but he probably is supposed to look kind of black bodied with dark red fins. Male Vic Haps don't always look the greatest when kept when Malawi cichlids, he probably isn't showing full male color.

Victorian Haps can be antisocial with Malawi cichlids. Sometimes they are bossy, sometimes intimidated.
