And this is the only man who imports for me no one in the whole UAE does.
Just so we are clear, not all my moliro have the red eyes, just a few that are showing more red. Most of them look just like yours. Mine do not have 22 lines, closer to 11 but they move too fast for me to get an exact count. I would be interested to hear where you learned that from because if it is true then I guess mine are not Moliro either. As for the color, these are both young fish so they are going to develop more color with time.

Are you saying you bought these as (RR)Red Rainbows? I don't have anywhere near the experience others do on here but I do have Moliro, Red Ndole, Lupota and Red Rainbows. My Red Rainbows are close in size and from a good source, LAA, and yours look nothing like my Red Rainbows and exactly like my Moliros but I never saw my Lupota at this age so Greg might be on to something there. I can honestly say all Reds I have seen at this age look very close to me so I don't know if I could even tell them apart but yours look like some type of Red, Moliro being the closest out of what I have seen.

Looking at this picture, the one to the left looks to have some blue in the face, my Moliros do not have this but my Red Ndole do. So I'm just going to go with the others and say it is too hard to tell at this age but that they are some type of 'Red'.
