Can anyone identify this Juvenile. LFS here where I stay provide very little information and they keep all african cichlids juveniles grouped together. So sometimes difficult to know what i get.

Looking at the base marking, the mouth shape, and the body shape it doesn't look like a commonly seen fish. Probably a Malawi "Hap" hybrid.

Oh that's a bummer. Never liked hybrids. Lets see how it looks all grown up. Thanks Noki.

The Juvi cichlid is growing up fast and have developed color. It looks to me to be protomelas spilonotus mara rocks. See newer picture attached.

It's a Mara Rocks hybrid.. pretty common in big box stores.
