Need help ... can anyone ID these African Cichlids???

Post by hiker73 on Sat Mar 20, 2010 9:47 pm

Got this fish about 8 months ago .... part of 2 shipments of about 30 fish. They were all pretty small and some were rather difficult to keep track of. We've lost some of the fish from those shipments in the beginning ... which further complicates the ID-ing process. I'm guessing this to be a female Red Top Ndumbi, a female Red Top Dwarf Afra, a female Yellow Fin Mbamba or possibly a Red Top Hongi. Since I can't be sure, they are isolated until the mystery is solved. Don't want to risk hybridization.

I haven't owned any of those Afra types so not much help but I would guess the first one to be male because that's to much color for most female Afra's.
Why_Spyder should be able to tell you though. You can PM him maybe to get a reply. You can also go to his site http://www.cynotilapia.info/ Why_spyder (Brian) or one of the other members should be able to help you.

looks like a red top afra could be from mbamba however it could also be a hybrid

Def. not a hybrid. Came from a very reputable breeder. Was told by them last week that it is female Yellow Fin Mbamba.
