pic 1 is a Copadichromis borleyi (Kadango)

pic 2 is a Nimbochromis livingstonii the only problem is that white crest i think that may be a sign that the fish has been fed white crain dont quote me on that though - where did you get this fish from??

Neither livingstoni or polystigma... That fish is Nimbochromis (AKA Tyrannochromis) fuscotaeniatus... And a very nice example thereof.

First fish is for sure C. borleyi "Kadango".

Dear Sir, The first appears to be a Copadichromis borleyi probably Katango, and the second one is a male Nimbochromis livingstoni, I believe, regards Norm Halliwell

first is Copodochromis and as the other's think kooks Kadango

second is ?

only Tyrannochromis fuscotaeniatus has the white blaze

neither Polystigma or Livingstoni develop this

but body shape seems too deep for fuscotaeniatus

Sure the 2nd is not a cross? :confused: As Chris says never seen a Poly or Livingstoni with a white blaze like this fish?

T fusco I didnot think had that body pattern or shape? Could be wrong for the 2nd time today, Hey Andrew.

I can see your been biding your time Dave, LOL :thumb

Hey Dobbin, yeah, ya could be... lol But all good!

T. (or N.) fuscotaeniatus does have that shape, colour and pattern. If you google the species, you will see many examples that look exactly like that fish. As Chris mentioned, it does look a bit stout in that photo, but I think that's more the camera angle than the shape of the fish. It does not look like a hybrid and seems to me to be a perfectly good example of its species.
