    Default Cichlid ID?

    Hello so i am brand new to cichlids and had some i needed to identify to know what they exactly are. I am sure the Yellow one with black stripes on his fins is a yellow lab. The orange one Red Zebra? and the blue ones i have no clue. The little blue one will actully appear to change colors. He is dark now but other times he is a lighter blue color.

    First 2 are hybrids. The last one I you are talking about the smaller one it looks like a Demosani. Could be wrong tho. If they came out of the "assorted cichlid" tank then almost 100% guarantee it's a hybrid and not going to be identifiable.

    Ah ok. Well I got all them from my wife as a gift. I love fish just not experienced with cichlids at all. So just going to assume they are all hybrids in this case. She got 4 yellows (two with and 2 without black strips) 2 orange, and 5 blueones for like 15-20 dollars from some guy that was selling all of his. But anyways Thanks for you help!

    Enjoy them. They've got personalities like no other.
