Hello everyone,
need help identifying this fish: it's just a little silver-bodied cichlid vith orange-flame fins.Shape of face and body resembling those of the Haps.The one i saw is just starting to colour up in an orange tint near the pectoral fins.
At the store it was labelled Haplocromis Venustus... I've never had the chance to see a Venustus juvenile but i doubt it is... so What's it?

It's impossible to say without a pic.

It doesn't sound like a venustus, though. They have a camouflage pattern to them.
