Hi all! I'm new to posting questions on this website, but have been reading through the forums for years! Anyways, this is about one of the new cichlids that I recently got from my LFS. I usually go to my local breeder so I know exactly what fish I have and that they have no diseases. Now, I have a cichlid that I don't have a clue what it could be. I hopefully attached some pictures correctly right underneath. Thanks! :D

That's Labidochromis joanjohnsonae, either female or juvenile. Dominant males turn mostly blue, but still have that pattern.

You may see them misidentified as L. textilis, a very similar, but much less common species. Another name you may see for them is Exasperatus, but that name has never been used in the description of any Cichlid.
