Here are some pics of the mom.






and I believe the dad to be this



I guess it would help if I knew what species they were haha

Are the socolofi?

The mother is normally solid brown but sometimes shows stripes almost identical to the snow white socolofi

The albino socolofi (Snow white socolofi) should not have any bars and has a much more torpedo like body shape. This guy is defintiley an albino M. zebra.

FYI-Rusties are Iodotropheus sprengerae, but that female does not have the right body shape for a rustie anyway. She looks more like a female Metriaclima greshakei

well I was guessing the white one was the father but there is alot more fish in the tank so it could be one of them but I thought they looked similar.

also in the tank are cobalt blues, Melanochromis joanjohnsonae, a rusty (which looks nothing like the mother), white labs, one yellow lab, and a blue... something?



Update: some of the fry are actually starting to show a little blue in their dorsal and pelvic fins, but are otherwise brown in color.

haha I almost forgot the most important one... I now believe this one to be the father but unknown species. LFS sold as a "sunshine" lmao but its nothing close to that. I'll try to get a good picture of him in a min.
