He/She is around an inch and have looked on numerous different websites to see if I could identify it or sex it, I have an auratus, and a yellow lab, I believe the yellow lab is a female, and am unsure of the auratus, but this little orange one always picks on the lab, but not as much the auratus, I see the auratus and the orange one almost like "dance around", would appreciate any feedback, thanks

I just recently stocked my new tank with Africans. Looked at a lot of pictures and did a lot of research. Just the other day I put in a red/cherry zebra. Mine looks just the same as yours. They tend to be orange in color, though they can get a darker orange to resemble a light red hence the name of the fish. I hope someone else can back me up with the identification. Keep looking in different galleries and books. They tend to be a big help in knowing what you want and what you have. Good luck!!
