Default IDing Kasanga Red Rainbows vs Golden Kazumba

How can you tell a Kasanga Red Rainbow Tropheus apart from a Golden Kazumba Tropheus?

Red Rainbows. Will have the sunspot and a blue or purple tint on the top of the dorsal fin, plus a couple of other distinct colors

Golden Kazumba Appear to be more golden no sun spot and different dorsal color.

I have never seen Golden's in person, but to me they look quite different. As fry not sure, you would just have to wait. What are your concerns?

One dead give away is Kazumba have war paint markings on their face, dead give away. Plus the colors really aren't that close, the yellows in the sides are very different.

Good to see you on here Gehan! It's Rick from PNAquaria.

Exactly what Jim and Greg said. Golden kazumba are more of an orange/yellow and have red dorsals and the stripes on their front mask. Red rainbows are.. More Rainbow like. Yellow side, red and blue dorsal, a multitude of colours, never seen two identical rainbows but they all look similar.
