Pseudocrenilabrus ID?

Post by notorioussway » Thu Jan 13, 2011 7:34 pm

I bought this trio at auction as Pseudocrenilabrus Philander but after looking at some pics and some reading I think this might Pseudocrenilabrus multicolor victoriae, what do you guys think?
These are the best pics I could get...

Definitely victoriae. The shape and coloration leaves no doubt! This species is still often sold as P. philander, and is treated under that name in many books.

Thank you very much. I was positive these were Pseudocrenilabrus multicolor victoriae but I couldnt find any real pictures of P. philander to compare and contrast it to except for the one small one.
