Hi Pam,

Here are three species from the Okavango Delta I saw from a video. Would you please help me to identify them ?

Hi London,

I showed your pictures to Facebook site that ID's fish and a reliable cichlid expert, Sam Borstein replied:

The first one is a school of mostly Oreochromis. The second is Serranochromis jallae, sometimes considered a subspecies of Serranochromis robustus. The third looks like Serranochromis altus.

Hope that helps you.
