Got 2 of these black and silver fish from the same tank as my Venustus at the LFS a few months ago. Didn't know what they were at the time and can't identify them from my "big book of Cichlids". Easy question for many, I'm sure. Thanks!! RB

Milomo, sometimes called VC=10. Very common nowadays, the juveniles are pretty decent looking. Females get drabber. Males get shiny blue with reddish highlights.

The barring varies with aquarium fish, they can get pretty dark depending on surroundings. Males color up after 4" or so.
