Saw this guy at my lfs. It was sold to me as an mbamba. I checked the mbamba profile pic and they definitely don't look the same. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

Looks exactly like a possible juvenile Labidochromis "Mbamba". Of course, it is hard to id for sure, but I would trust the store for now.

You do realize the difference between juvenile and female color, and dominant male color? This is all normal.

Give him some time to get settled in and grow up a bit. If he is what the store says they are fun fish to keep.

I have a mbamba in my all male tank. Looks just like that. He is a subdom male so they lOok almost purple with orange fins. When he shows his color he looks awesome.
