The fish up top at the fishforum logo is a Frontosa. I don't think they look much alike, unless of course they look a lot different as juvelines??

Again, definitely not :) Looks nothing like a juvie frontosa, which basically look the same as adults, but smaller.

If I were a betting man, which I am, I would put my money on the female Aulonocara nyassae, commonly known as the peacock cichlid. She sure doesn't look as good as her brother.

I am sorry guys it took so long to get back to you about the fish i found out it was a brown peacock cichild with really poor colouring. I was left with cichild granules or flakes which he seems to eat very happily what else would improve his colouration?

I dunno what the heck a brown peacock is other than every female peacock out there. You can feed it just about anything and it won't improve its colour, females stay brown. It looks big enough that if it was a male, it would be colouring by now.

I have never heard of a brown peacock cichlid. It must be a new species.

Not so much a new species, as a typical made-up LFS name for something that they really have no idea what it actually is ;)
