Two Aulonocara sp. I'd like identified, please!

Post by crocdoc » Tue Nov 15, 2016 10:47 pm

Hi all,

I am currently cataloging old photographs and have come across a number of photographs of African cichlids which I am not able to identify with any confidence. Consequently, I joined the forum because I figured that the fine people on here would have far more experience with African cichlids than I do and would perhaps be able to identify the cichlids in the photographs.

I'll post them a couple at a time as I go through them, starting with these two.

I had this one labelled as Aulonocara hueseri, but it has fewer vertical bars on the body than the other A. hueseri in my photographs (although it is possible they are wrong, too!).

I had this one labelled as A. hansbaenschi.

I'm happy to be corrected on both. I may even have the wrong genus (the first one may be Protomelas, I was thinking?) but I'd rather learn something new than stay wrong. :)

Thanking you in advance.
