Hi all,

I came across this guy on a local classifieds, the owner seems to have very limited knowledge about fish keeping, and simply calls this fish a "cichlid". Says he's 4cm, 6 months old. I'm thinking it might be an apisto, but not certain. I feel somewhat compelled to rescue him, just want to make sure I know how to care for him!

I would say auratus and plan on keeping him in a 75G tank. One of the more aggressive Lake Malawi mbuna.

Ah! Nailed it! I'm not really familiar with African cichlids so had no idea the could look so similar! Thanks so much.
