I recently purchased a very tiny cichlid from my local pet store. They weren't sure what it was because it came along for the ride with some other fish they had ordered. I thought it was a fry since it was as long as a dime. However it hasn't grown any. I've had it for about 6 months.
It is definitely a south or central american cichlid.
Here are some pics. They're blurry because he's so small my camera won't focus on him.
He's literally this long ----- by this high |
He is a iridescent blue with red stripes going up and down. He has a prominent dorsal fin, with long front fins like a dwarf cockatoo cichlid.
