Bought a new tank yesterday and there were several unknown cichlids in it. (The guy couldn't remember what he had.) Here's the first one. I have a good guess on what it might be but would like other input. Thanks.
He's about 6" long with kind of a blue/steel sheen to his scales. I only have one.

Unfortunately, without any colour or distinguishing markings it is impossible to say what this. If the fish settles in and colours up, try again.

It sure looks like C. chrysonotus to me. Those huge eyes and and the body shape are fairly unique. Here's a pic of C. chrysonotus I grabbed off of the web from malwaicichlids.com:
