And I am not able to identify this African Cichlid. :-? I purchased him in a mixed tank. Any help would be grateful. :fish: I apologize for the quality of my picture, though you get the idea. Thanks

Thank you sir.. :D I noticed that you yourself also have two listed. Do they stay the same brown color in the body, or do they change their color as they get older? Thanks again

Sorry but that guy does not look like any Copadichromis borleyi juveniles I have seen.
Again I have no idea what it is though.
I suspect it is as labeled a mixed African. Malawi yes, a pure Copadichromis, I think not.

I agree. The body is too lean for C. borleyi. Snout is too long as well.

Any chance at a larger and clearer shot?

These are the only pictures that I have that don't have too much glare/blurry...though it's not at the best angle. Hope this is a little better.

It is the same fish. The lighting in the tank makes it hard to get a decent picture. The two I just posted were taken when he was at the bottom of the tank further from the light.
