Name that fish?

OK, I tried this in the Cichlids forum with no luck. Thought I'd try it here.

Anyone know what this is? I am thinking rusty cichlid...

So far that's been my best guess. I've never seen one live, only photos, so it complicates the identification. That and the little booger is so FAST!

Thanks!

Could be a rusty, as Lupes affirmed, but the photo is poor. It could also be on of the peacocks. Need more detail and a better pic.

I thought he also looked resembled a couple of the peacock cichlids I'd seen, but I think the nose shape is more like the rusty. I wouldn't be surprised if it did turn out to be a peacock tho. This is one of the fish from Mr. Ebay. Most were ID'd but some were not. He also had a Nimbochromis venustus in there.

I'll see what I can do about better pics today and get them up tonight.

Thanks,

Ashkat
