Thread: Can someone identify these for me?

  1. #1

    Default Can someone identify these for me?

    I bought these from of all places walmart. (Yeah, yeah, I know.) I now know that my setup is far from ideal for cichlids, and I'm working on it. These guys have so much personality than fish I have had in the past, and I'm loving them!

    I think the yellow guy is an electric yellow, but I really have no clue. And I REALLY have no clue about the other one. Any help would be much appreciated. =]

    I feel like I should note that the first fish has shiny shimmers of blue that you can't see in this picture that well because they're inside that plastic log.

    Do you really think that could be a kenyi even though its so yellow and not as blue? or is that just because she is still so small? Or do you think its a kenyi hybrid? Not trying to second guess you because I'm sure you know much more than me, I just really want to know my fish.

    Yup, kenyi are born blue... however, ps. saulosi has the exact opposite coloring as kenyi... they are all born yellow, and the males turn blue.
