Don't buy any haps or peacocks or African river fish because sometimes stores get them mixed up.

Okay so by haps you mean like the scientific name has hap... something? And how do you tell African river fish apart?

Okay i ended up only getting one yellow lab they had another one but it didn't really hand side fins. The yellow ones with them had brown dots and were pile malowo or something and get 6 inches. The only little fish that had were those two blue guys, kenyii and dama. I am going to go look at my lfs list tomorrow and see what they can get me in for Thursday. I want one more lab i think or should i do 2? I currently have 5 of them. And maybe an afra cobue or what common one would you suggest and try and look for on the list??
