I went into the LFS today looking for Rusties, to my surprise they had a few (been looking for weeks) I said gimme all you got. After he netted them all, six in total he showed them to me in the bags and there was 1 I was skeptical about. It was very dull and uncolored so I figured it was stressed or female, I was kinda in a hurry (my sons b-day today) so i said I'll take them all. After getting home and being in the tank for a while it colored up some and now I don't know what it is. Defiantly not a rusty like the other 5.

This is what the Rusties look like



And this is what I have questions about : What is it first of all and second do I need to get it out of my tank?

I wouldn't think it's an electric blue as it's grey and black with a yellow streak across it's top fin. I agree that the body shape appears to be a Hap perhaps it's a hybrid of an electric blue and something else.

Juveniles and females are this colour. Scieanochromis fryeri is correct.

Ok thanks for the ID.

Think it will be OK in my tank or does it need to go back to the LFS?
