G'day all,
Decided to put another half dozen fish in my African tank. Found these little guys but don't know what they are. The shop had them labelled as Protomelas Taneatus, but Mr Google doesn't know the name.
These two are only about 2 inches long at the moment.
Any ideas?
Apologies for the photo - couldn't get them to sit still for 2 seconds!
Thanks.

they had it spelled wrong, Protomelas taeniolatus better know as the Red Empress. But those are not Red Empress, they look to be red zebras but there not like any red zebras ive seen before. Ill look around at some of my sources and see if i can find anything B)

*EDIT, I looked around and i dont see anything like it maybe its just the picture, it could also be a hybrid*

Thanks Ken,
It'll be interesting to see what they grow up to be.

Hmmm... I think you might be right. They look like they have the mouth brooder lips. I hope they aren't as aggressive as some say they are.

Thanks :)
