I bought these cichlids about 6 months ago and when the where young they were all the same colour yellow. As they have gotten bigger the females have gone a white colour and the male has gone a more brighter yellow. Both the male and female get a blue shimmer over thier body when in the sun, and when the male is showing off he gets a blue line across his dorsal

The sexes of the fish are definatly right cause the yellow one has been doing his little dance and showing off and i have had the white ones with small mouth fulls. They have been in thier own tank since i got them and as i said they were all identical when i got them, and then they changed colours.

Thanks for your help so far guys! Realy appreciated.

ive had the same fish for about 3 years his about 14 cm and i have never knows what species it is, its exactly the same as the one in the picture above wid the blueish tinge going threw it only alot bigger , his very agressive cos i grew him up with americans he use to ways get picked on, know those bigger americans are gone and i have new fish in there he picks on my jack dempsey red devil that are a little bigger then him and a heap of africans.

Thats not a hajo as its yellow all over??

hajo are more yellow in the head with a little on the body, when i had them 10year ago.

The head of a hajo is more like a morrii.

Ps flameback !! I dont think they are in Aus??

Then you can see in your pic MVP not yellow all over like that male.

Mel barlowi is the closest I can see but as said not with females that whiteish colour??

Did you find out the name supplied by the seller Luke.??

Nice looking fish i think.
