Minnow-like Fish

Recommended Posts

Guest chibimunkey

Hey, I own a cichlid that looks very much like a minnow...but as far as I know minnows aren't cichlids. So what on earth is it!? It's a light grey color with one iridescent orange/red stripe on each side.

Oh and if you could also tell me how much it's worth that'd help too! I got all of my fish from a friend and he told me nothing of their worth or classification other than they are all cichlids. I found the classifications for two of my three.

 

Julidochromis regani "Kipili"

Amphilophus citrinellus X Vieja synspillum Blood Parrot Fish

 

Oh yeah and I also got a mammoth suckerfish!!! lol

There are a group of cichlids that look somewhat like minnows, the Paracyprichromis and Cyprichromis from Lake tang. They are smallish schooling fish. There are a bunch of different ones, you might be able to find one that matches what you have.
