Can anyone tell me what kind of fish this is? https://flic.kr/p/5332522367 I asked for a Malawi blue dolphin cichlid and this is what they gave me.
LOL! Go back to the store, get a refund, and then never set foot in that store again.

Actually, that family of fish are often referred to as "dolphin fish" because of their visual similarities to aquatic mammals... So the store isn't exactly in the wrong; however, all I could find on them is that they're native to Uganda, so they might not be Malawian.

No worries its a cool fish. Dunno are you going to keep it? No idea how you keep these guys myself. Guess big peaceful set up (heard of folk keeping em with big knifefish) but just a guess.

All the best James
