That's why I stick to sa I guess lol. I never wanted Africans until I fell in love with western odd balls. I was going off of head shape but mouth brooders makes sense.TexasDomer said:What is geo short for? If you mean Geophagus, they're not those.
I think number 5 might be a yellow blaze. I know for sure when I bought them all, one was labelled as a yellow blaze, and one was a Ngara Flametail PeacockDemeter said:Geos as in earth eaters? Not at all, these are all African mouth brooding cichlids, either haps or peacocks.
1,2,3 all peacocks. 1 would be the only one to be a specific type, likely somewhere in the line of sunset/fire/dragon's blood. 3 is for sure a female and I would guess 1 a female also, but it is rather young yet. 2 could be a male but it looks pretty plump in the belly so a good chance of it being female.
4 and 6 have the body shape of young electric blue ahlis, and it is pretty common to see ahlI and peacock hybrids. I'd guess they are hybrids because they have the vertical stripes like peacocks while still having the shape of a hap.
5 is stumping me, you will have to wait till it is an adult. Obviously a hap, but of which species (if any specifically) I don't know. There are so many cross bred Africans out there because they have a tendency to interbreed with other species, much like the average dog would.
