I found this guy at the fish store today - about 7 inches - great looking fish!

They were given the fish - they have no idea what it is.




Pardon the less than stellar cell phone pics!

Looks mayan to me too, there are several subspecies of uro's with differant color patterns. While not the prettest one I've seen (the best ones imo are the red color, the reason they are sold as red terrors), I still think it's a uro.

It's about an inch thick looking at it straight on .

They should color up when fed a lot of krill, Hikari Bio Gold, Tetra Color Flakes, and Omega 1 Cichlid pellets. Mine looked really dull, drab, and washed out before I changed his diet. Oh yeah, I also cranked the temp to about 84.

Mine or the first one? Because I know mine is not a hybrid. I don't think the other one is either.
I was talking about the OP's pic. The tail spot is not quite all there, the body shape is slightly different, That's the only reason I suggest that It could be a hybrid. Your's looks great and looks as pure as they come.

If that's a convict, that's the biggest convict I've EVER seen.

If it's a Jack Dempsey, it's missing all of it's spangles.
