Uhh I'm curious too. Does not look like any anabantid I've ever seen. Looks like a cross between some sort of chocolate gourami and a sparkling gourami. Seems kinda off to me.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

yep they are definitely flag cichlids the problem is they grow 4 inches and i have 5 in my 20 gallon tank, im gonna see if the guy will take them back because even though yes i should have inspected them better i really believed they were sparkling gouramis i thought they looked like that because they were just shipped and stressed.
