Definately not a cobwe...cobwe have yellowy/orange on the head and a more purple body. Can't tell you what it is sorry but I hope that helped.

Unsure what it is mate but definately not a kingsizei, face shape looks completely different. Is it breeding with a female kingsizei there?

Cheers,

Richard.

no with a female afra cobwe

interestingly enough the male kingsizei will only try and breed with a female of the same, and so do the afra cobwe.

could it be that the orange on the head has not developed yet? There is a more dominant male in the tank. as for the purple it is in a tank that has a blue light...

what do you think?

Definitely not a Cobwe.

Cobwe are a much stockier than that fish, dominant males have the yellow head, a sub dominate male will show some yellow at times. Younger males and females are either brown or grey this fish is too blue.

Well the fish were moved to a new tank yesterday and since then he has become the top dog in the tank.

I will give him 2 weeks to show some yellow on his head... if no change then he and his fry may well become fish food! :lol1:

thanks everyone for your help.
