im pretty sure thats an Nimbochromis Polystigma
I've got a 4" suspected male who is very greedy.
im pretty sure thats him
His face looks a little too "clean" to be N. polystigma.

Well, it's a good looking, nice sized fish, I had a polystigma at one time, and that can not be one, I'm with the others, it's most likely a hybrid, venustus x livingstonii cross.

saturnine If you would ship I would take him so the person you plan on returning it to does not sell him as a venustus or livingstonii. I am addicted to Nimbochromis species and he would look awesome with my other male Nimbos :lol: I am soon to set up a 300 gallon indoor pond so he would have plenty of room to stretch his fins. I would not breed him.
