    Hybrid Yellow Labs. Usually this color with no black in the fins comes from crossing Labs with Red Zebras. It is a very common hybrid, and some people mistake them for a pure fish.

    are they aggressive??? should they be housed on their own or can they be part of a community tank?

    cichlids are aggressive if you have them with other species of fish, so cichlids only

    if you get another tank you can put them in there and put them next your current tank :eek: or just change your stock

    discus aren't a beginner fish I would think, there like intermediate

    Discus require considerable expertise to maintain, certainly not for beginners. I've been studying/breeding fish nearly 50 years, and they still gave me headaches when I've tried them.
