Vic Haps for ID

Postby cichlid crazy » Thu Jan 20, 2011 6:11 pm

We have been given a 2m1f trio of large sized adult Vic cichlids and need some help with an ID confirmation please, don't care if they're mutts as they're nice fish, the 2 males are 6-7 inches and the female is 4-5 inches, one thing we have noticed which is backwards to our other fish and that is the barring display on the dominant and sub-dom male is the opposite way round to what we normally expect, the dom male shows barring more than the other which shows blotches:
Both males, dom male is at the top:

His mask isnt as defined as i would expect- does it go infront of his eyes more or is it just the pic?

Thanks to Paul B for a phonecall this morning we have a likely id on these haps, Paul said have a look at Labrochromis sp Stone but via google we can only find pics of the Labrochromis Ishmaeli and some look spot on.....................apparently extinct in the wild courtesy of the Nile Perch.
Sorry Jim but I'm gonna be naughty and put a link up to another forum (its in Dutch) but halfway down the page is a pic of these, I have a few other photos and our fish show exactly the same markings as the fish on the link:
