I am trying to save these guys from the LFS, and would like to get a positive id. I think they are either Bartletts or evansi's. The were sold as Purple Queens, but I don't think that is right.

Interesting. The position of the stripes is different. In the linked photo the stripe is right along the base of the dorsal fin. In the pictures here the stripe is slightly below the dorsal fin. Possibly a different variety of the same species, or possibly a different species but very closely related?
Or maybe I'm imagining things. Wouldn't be the first time. :rollface:

They also have a stripe trhough the eyes. All the pic I see of queens though are of males, and I am starting to think these are female queens.

The pics above have stripes through the eyes.
One of the fish above have a stripe and the one in the link I posted also has the stripe. I am almost 100% sure they are not Bartletts click my house I have pics of them that are very accurate to what they look like.
