Hello, I bought two peacock bass a few months ago from petzone tropical online labeled as cichla kelberi. I can definitely say that they are not kelberi, they look like temensis...but not completely like temensis, I'm seeing more gold in these then that which I have seen on temensis. I think they might be hybrids...what do you think?

Look like azuls more than temensis. Don't see any kelberi. Would contact petzone and see if they'd be reasonable to refund/credit your money.

See what bOOsteN aUdI bOOsteN aUdI says.

100% Tems.

Azul would have more vertical bars as well as fins would have a hue of blue.

Could be right. I thought I saw some dark shadows in b/w the bars. Oh well!

There is faint bars on them but they have red on the lower fins, Azul Tims. ? Nice looking bass anyway .
