    You are one stealy eyed fish identifier...
    Based on the following info I'm inclined to agree;

    Oreochromis niloticus niloticus (Linnaeus, 1758) Family: Cichlidae (Cichlids), subfamily: Pseudocrenilabrinae picture (Ornil_m2.jpg) by WorldFish Center

    Order: Perciformes (perch-likes)

    Class: Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes)

    FishBase name: Nile tilapia

    Max. size: 60.0 cm SL (male/unsexed; Ref. 4967); max. published weight: 4,324 g (Ref. 40637); max. reported age: 9 years

    Environment: benthopelagic; potamodromous (Ref. 51243); freshwater; brackish; depth range 5 ? m

    Climate: tropical; 14 33C; 32N - 10N

    Importance: fisheries: highly commercial; aquaculture: commercial

    Resilience: Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.14-0.41; tm=1-2; tmax=9)

    Vulnerability: Moderate vulnerability

    Distribution: Africa: coastal rivers of Israel; Nile from below Albert Nile to the delta; Jebel Marra; Lake Chad basin and the rivers Niger, Benue, Volta, Gambia and Senegal. Widely introduced for aquaculture, with many existing strains. Several countries report adverse ecological impact after introduction.

    Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 16 - 18; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12 - 13; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 9 11; Vertebrae: 30 32. Genital papilla of breeding male not tassellated. Jaws of mature male not greatly enlarged (length of lower jaw 29-37 % of head length). The most distinguishing characteristic of the species is the presence of regular vertical stripes throughout the depth of caudal fin (Ref.4967). Margin of dorsal fin grey or black. Vertical bars in caudal fin 7-12.

    Biology: Occurs in a wide variety of freshwater habitats like rivers, lakes, sewage canals and irrigation channels (Ref. 28714). Mainly diurnal. Feeds mainly on phytoplankton or benthic algae. Marketed fresh and frozen (Ref. 9987). Oviparous (Ref. 205). Mouthbrooding by females (Ref. 2). Extended temperature range 8 - 42 C, natural temperature range 13.5 - 33 C (Ref. 3).

    Here is the latest picture of the three Doctor fish...
    They are pushing five inches now and will eat evrything that is offered to them. I'm guessing that I have 1 male and two females.
