Cichlid ID

Post by salazaelle » Sat Aug 11, 2018 7:25 pm

Hello everyone!

I'm in desperate need of your help. I have been searching high and low to find out what these 2 mysterious cichlids are. Someone gave them to me so I have absolutely no background info. They are not in the greatest shape so their colors a most likely faded ...

This first guy is pretty big. At least 20cm maybe 25 .. couldn't get a more precise measurement. Couldn't find anything that even looked like him ...
The second one (sorry for the crappy photo, he was so nervous ...) is much smaller ... I'd estimate around 10 to 15 cm. He has part of the eyes red as well as some hint of red in the fins. The closest I found would be the Amphilophus family ...
The attachment 20180811_145205.jpg is no longer available
I hope you can help me with that .. Thanks :)
