Need help identifying...

Post by AzD » Wed Jan 13, 2016 2:48 pm

Hey all. Need help identifying these three cichlids.

Do you guys think this is a German red or ruby red? His colors are off, is this attributed more to stress or more dominance related.

Second pic...they were all kind enough to gather together for the group shot :lol:

The first one looks like a rusty Cichlid male (lodotropheus sperengae?)

The second one looked like a blue ahli but his mohawk changed colors from white to yellow. Not sure what he is now.

And the third - shimmering light blue, I have no clue. Looks like a male.

Thanks in advance for the help!
