Can't find much info on fish on the forum.

Saw these in the Letaba River at the start of December. Does anyone have an idea what it is?

Mozambique Tilapia.

(They have variable colour, sexes differ and the view from the top is rather deceiving but, just to confirm, you can go to - https://www.inaturalist.org/guide_taxa/1558676)

Nice pics. Hope this helps.
