Identify fish and tank mates



I have inherited this fish from a friend who had to move and couldn't house the fish or tank in his new place. I was not sure what type of cichlid it is or even if it is a cichlid. Could anyone please identify it and options of a few tank mates that would suit them he is housed in a 4ft tank.


Cheers Brad

Not a convict, likely some kind of african....pic isn't very good for a positive ID though. Any chance of a better side pic?

Not a venustus for sure, and definitely not a kenyi. Could be a female fryeri or some other peacock, but again, a better pic is really in order :)

I am really in no place to say as I have very limited knowledge of most cichlids but from the picture, a female peacock of some sort would also be my guess.

You just reminded me again that I used to keep a female brown Aulonocara nyassae.;) It has been a long time since I kept Malawian cichlids.
