Hey, I have the same fish you have in the first pic. I also am unable to find out what it is. Mine started out with a greenish body and now has turned a dark color exactly like your. It has since turned even darker with a metallic blue shimmer. The females have a greenish color to them. How did you attach a pic to your post. I ttried to paste a pic of mine to your post and it wouldn't take it. Here is a link to a site that shows one similar and they call it a Mystery (hybrid?) Victorian

just taken a stab at it but the 1st one looks like a Haplochromis sp "blue obliquidens" to me, And the 2nd one looks just like me so called fulu's. But I don't for sure. Maybe it is. The red in my real fire red is has more red than the ones that was called fulu's.

I tried to paste it and it wouldn't go. I then tried to upload pics to my personal gallery and it gave me an error about a category not being selected even though everything was filled out.

You need to down size your pictures to 6X4 something then they will upload to the forum.

Okay. I created a gallery for my pics and did a right click on the picture and did a copy and then tried to do a paste to this thread and nothing happened. Is there another way I am suppose to do this. Thanks

IseeFish, create a photobucket account, then upload your pics there, and then just copy the IMG Code and paste it to your reply. It should work with no problem that way.
