HI guys,

I bought multiple of these light blue cichlids from an assorted cichlid tank at petsmart (limited LFS selection around here) and was wondering if anyone could ID them. When I looked it up thought they could be blue zebras? possibly hybrids.. Curious as to your guys thoughts on them. Let me know if you need more pictures, etc.

I couldn't open up the pics on my android phone.
Powder Blue Socolofi, Yellow Tail AceI and occasionally Blue Zebras & KenyI show up in the vendor's mixed Mbuna tanks in my area. All blue as juveniles.
Try again to post pics.

I think you have some very nice looking Blue Zebras. Here's a pic of mine.

I think he's about 3" inches. I really like the shape of the Zebras & Kenyi. I have some real pretty Red Zebras.

that is really pretty, how come your red zebra has blue mixed in? I haven't seen any like that or maybe its just because mine haven't reached maturity.. wonder if they will turn out similar

The translucent blue fins sometimes show up in male Red Zebras. I hand picked the only two blue fins out of a tank of approx. 30 - 35 Red Zebras.
