Hi everyone,

I bought a used fish tank recently and it came with fish.
I got a couple of yellow labs but I got this other fish too...
I asked the owner what it was and he said he didn't know :-?

I was wondering if anyone could help me identify what type of cichlid this is.
The previous owner wasn't so... caring so I wouldn't be too surprised if it wasn't a Malawi species...

Guess he is a Labeotropheus fuelleborni cross with a Metriaclima. Looks a big boy. Could I guess be a fuelleborni very far from wild as the nose tends to shrink each generation in tank bred or farm bred ones. Either way may be probs ahead as not a peaceful cichlid. Well usually. :wink:

Yeah the previous owner said that he would attack any new tankmates and most of them died cause of him.

They finally seem to be coming out a bit more often, the previous owner didn't care much to keep the temp of the water high and would not feed for weeks periodically :/
Water changes were letting the water evaporate and filling it up >.<

I added a few more fish in hopes of coaxing them out too :/
