I have been reading about the Kenyi, and apparently it is a notoriously aggressive fish, which is not what I want to begin with. When I bought this fish I was told that is what it was, but after looking at some pictures I am skeptical. The images I see seem to have a more tapered face, but this guy is rather flat with a bit of a hump by the forehead. Can someone possibly verify if it is or not by these sub par pictures I take?



[EDIT] Update link to a little larger picture..


I like this one, but if he is just going to terrorize the rest, I will get rid of him while he is still small.

Thanks,

Your fish has the markings of a kenyi but the facial features i agree are quite different, im wondering if it isnt a cross with some other african. secondly, if you dont want aggressive fish. The africans especially mbuna are not what you want because in my experience with them they all tend to be extremely territorial, and aggressive. Also beautiful. :)

Ok then. I do know that they can be territorial, and I'm ok with that, but after reading on the Kenyi some more, it is basically said, don't even think about it if you have anything under 75 gal, and at least 3 females for one male. If this isn't the case, then I can roll with it and see what happens I suppose.
