but aren't they kodangos?....
PS; can't see auratus....where are they ??.....
These may not be Kadangos..I think they may be a strain of the same Yellow Peacock bred to show some red/orange. With time as they grow larger, it will be easier to ID them.
There are too many nice and delicate fish in this tank to risk keeping Auratus in them.. The Mubna (3 Auratus and 2 Kenyi (Blue Morph)) are currently in a bucket (with a sponge filter) till I figure out what to do with them.
This is what I will advice you as well.. Don't keep aggressive Mbuna with your fish.

Most Mbuna (rock-dwelling Malawi Cichlids) are very aggressive as compared to Hap"Utaka" (or Malawi Cichlids of open waters).
I just don't want to risk a Rs. 200 fish for a Rs.20 fish.
(Another reason is that my 50 gal tank was going to prove a bit small for all 16 Malawi Cichlids (11+ 5 mbuna)..Once I upgrade to the 90 gal. I will have the option of getting some more fish.. I will consider a couple more of Yellow Labs and Blue Dolphins and keep an eye out for any premium Peacocks available.)
I am planning to give them away to my favorite Local Fish Store (LFS) at Chembur (when I find time this weekend).
I would have given them to you if you had a Mbuna only tank, but I don't want you to risk your premium fish either. (Which reminds me, Is your Auratus still in the "hospital tank"?.. If you want, I can get the Mbuna to your place.. They can live in the "Hospital tank" for a few months before they will grow larger and you will have to consider giving them away. Let me know..)
PS: Yellow Labs are technically mbuna, but they are among the exceptions.
