If you can get a better picture it would make it easier to ID them. IMO it looks like a yellow lab and a male peacock of some sort from the blurry pics.

I agree looks like a male peacock and a yellow lab, They are capably of breeding, nature will decide on if they actually do or not

Any mouthbrooder can breed with any other mouthbrooder but the $25,000 question is why on earth would you want the to?

Actually a good point, Thing is with making 'hybrids' is u get the fry and they honestly
Wont be the nicest cichlids in the world, the will get too big and u will end up giving them away and eventually they will sell and junk breeds will be everywhere.. Thats what some guy told
Me at a LFS. Idk if its true
But its definatly
A way to look at it. I can assure u the hybrids wont look as nice as u would think. But it is possible

I heard at an lfs you can breed them back. Not sure if that's true or not.

It looks like a mbuna and peacock to me aswell

Does it look like one of these?

Or maybe it shows some red like this
