I have a dark orange with random spotting and light black stripes. I HAVE PICS BUT CANT TELL IF IT IS TRULY A LOMBARDOI or a hybrid and whether it's male or female. Please help!

The OB, which maybe a hybrid since it is so vague looking, does not show any signs of being male far as I can tell. A male would get a blue tint, longer pointed fins, more distinct eggspots.

Were you asking if the orange was a Lombardoi? Or talking about the Kenyi in the first pic?

I was talking about the OB. The OB does have a blue tint between its gills and underbelly. Also when the light hits it right I see a blue shine.

I don't see a hint of an egg spot and the fish is only 1-1.5" long so it's really too young to show male colors. Most likely a female.

It has a an egg spot on the anal fin but only 1 that I can tell..... I heard females could also develop an egg spot... So still no conclusion at this point. I will update once they are bigger.
