I got this one in a group of fry that were suppose to be red flanks. However, it doesn't look the same.

And this one is a stunted fish in the same batch. It is small compared to the others. I think it could be a female red flank.

Thanks for the help.

there are occasion where vics go dark, no real reason why but they tend to turn blue or dark blue. it has been seen with rubys, flamebacks, nyreiei ect. your red flank looks like a red flank, just dark. if you see some red starting to present on the snout and checks then it is a red flank for sure.

the small one is hard to see but there are always a few runts in every batch.

Yes..I found that the male red flanks look different from each other. The dominant one has some green, black, and bright red; however, the subdominant ones do not exhibit the same bright colors so it is confusing sometimes.

I,ve encountered a dark morph, as soon as i removed him from the group and into a large community he showed more "normal" colouration.

If those are the ones that you got from Ross, then they are P. Red Flanks-he kept all his fry in separate tanks.
