clarification on Red Empress

Dragon Blood, Strawberry, Red Fishy.... What ever they call them they are either 1 hybrids or 2 line breeds.


When it comes to the peacocks by those names, they are all hybrid fish. Most are hybridized, and then line bred for the wacky colors.


Yep most if not all are hybrids if named those

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

The major problems with naming these fish is every retailer places a catchy "marketable" name to help them sell. Even some breeders do this I have noticed lately. Personally These fish aren't really my favorites but thats just my opinion.

Glad you found what you needed Kegger. So Cich now you have some albeit vague idea what your fish is. And I do want to see pics.  ;D

Of the Red Empress variety, there are two classes. One morph has been "line-bred" in Europe for substantially more red color and consequently has been dubbed the "Super Red Empress."



thats what I was looking for, thanks Shawn

I know for sure that the Aulonocara sp. german red is a line breed fish from Germany. One could definatly make the assumption that a "Super Red Emperess" is a line breed fish.

Here is a pretty good species article from Cichlid-Forum
