If it is just a Moorii RED most likely it is a Moliro.

I do have a colony of moliro before & their fry looks like it. But the best answer should come from your trader or your source itself.

They look exactly like the Moliro I have from Petsmart but I'm unsure how reliable Petsmart is. Some are the same size as well. Others already have red dorsal fins and red eyes. The ones I've had for longer are turning into beautiful fish but they are still very young. I'm not sure how helpful that is but they do look exactly like some of my Moliros.

As juvies Lupota cut throats look just liek that, so its really hard to say until they get some size. You have to watch some of these places and hybrids too, but from the pic and a guess I would say Lupotas.

Hmm I'll look into that. I believe moliro have an extra bar between their lines, like if u look from top it has 22 lines where as all these 14 pcs have 11 lines let's see you are. Right after some time maybe it will get confirm he said he sold me RR for sure. I bought moliro from him very good red with green tingy on top. And this is the only man who imports for me no one in the whole UAE does.
