They actually resemble both right now, but it's to early to tell what they will look like.
They are hybrids, their Mama is a beautiful and very friendly Kenyi, with great deep blue color.
The Papa is a Red Top Zebra, his name is charlie. He is just barely a year old now and is 51/2" long 6" if you count his tail. He is a dark navy almost charcoal gray with dark Rust Red fins. He is the gentlest Mbuna I've ever seen. He has never been in, even a play fight.
When Rainbow was first holding he did carefully chase off everyone and hovered over Rainbow until I put her in the fry tank.
The fry have his fin color on their bodies and Rainbows blue body color on their fins. They are extremely alert and aware. They watch me while I watch them. They don't hide when I feed them, even though my arm is half way in the tank. But when my grandson comes bouncing up they all rush for cover. It drives Casey crazy.
