What type of chiclid is this? I'd like to add it to my collection.

When I had mine in my mix tank he never colored up to his full potential. If you re planning on putting one in with your existing stock I wouldn't plan on him looking quite like that picture

I had these in 3 scenarios:
1-species tank with females, best coloration. Of course they looked most like the pic when actually spawning.
2-all-male tank...fish was pale.
3-mixed gender mbuna tank...fish turned almost black and females languished after a couple of years.

they did best in a singles species tank?
I would think that they would, especially if it was just one male and 8 or 10 females. The male would always be on display for the females and no other fish to stress him out or pick on him.
