now we will see some malawi haps. malawi haps generally grows larger than peacocks.

Copadichromis borleyi - this fish grows big 8inch. make up you have a big tank 4footer and up.

Protomelas sp. "Steveni Taiwan" (Taiwan Reef) - most of these sold in SG LFS are infact hybrids. pure taiwan reef have red anal fins and white dorsal blaze. hybrids have yellow anal fins and some yellow on dorsal. if you are lucky you can still find the pure ones. good luck

Protomelas taeniolatus (Red) - these are big fish growing to 9inch. they are actually quite rare here in SG LFS. only see them once in a while.

hello guys

i hope these pictures will be helpful to those bros keeping malawi cichlids, to help identify them. because SG LFS did not even know the proper names for malawi.
there are a lot of hybrids on the SG LFS market. those like OB, albino, pink peacocks.
there is nothing wrong keeping hybrids. but i rather prefer cichlids with proper name and orginal colors. cheers!
