Vince, I like him and he looks great but what is he? You'll have to help me out with Lake Malawi fish. I can't say I know them at all! *lol*

I honestly have no stinkin clue I just no it was purchased at cichlid solutions , I dont name my fish just cause of a little superstition my wife has, but I had to call this one ramboo due to the black marks across his face and the fact I hav no clue what he is .

I have a smaller on about half his size just starting to show colors, the bigger one seems to be picking on him a bit ,

but i have it labled on my you tube page as a firemouth hap just because when i made my fish buy at C.S I had got 12 fish and that was the name that was a close enough match for the fish

sorry i couldnt help but if you find out please let me no

My best guess with out looking further into it atm would be fire hap or flameback hap. It is definitely a victorian though. If I have time tonight I should be able to positively Id him if nobody else does.

On the basis of what Ben has said so far I'll move this to the Lake Vic forum. Very Happy

I'd have to lean toward Flameback, but the shape looks a bit off to me. Notice how the red doesn't quite continue to the peduncle? My guess is he's got some Ruby Green in him somewhere. A better look at the anal fin would help.
