The attachment Malawi Cichlid 1.jpg is no longer available
Can someone help me with an ID of my newest fish? I can get a better picture if this one is not detailed enough. (The fish at the top of the pic is a Eureka Red Jake)
Thank you!

Thanks for responding. I certainly don't know a lot about Cichlid breeds but the Lwanda examples on the internet are a bit different than mine. His mouth seems to turn "upwards", almost like he has a larger "chin" and a smaller nose than other examples. Could just be a hybrid too I guess.

Yours does look quite a bit like a lwanda to me as well. It just looks like an older, often beaten up fish, which can cause the variances you speak of.... or, it could be a hybrid, impossible to know.
