Exclamation What African Cichlid is this?!

He is in a tank with a yellow lab and They seem to be doing great. He has named himself the alpha male and claimed most of the tank as his. He's not mean, just chases the yellow lab around when he gets too close, no biting though. This is the best picture i was able to get. Mobile Photobucket

Could be a Metriaclima pulpican, Metriaclima Blue Zebra or a young Pseudotropheus demasoni (Pombo Rocks)

Need a much bigger picture of the fish to be able to see it properly.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

What do you mean bigger? Like more pixels or just a closer picture? Thanks for the suggestions (:

Need a larger picture of the fish showing its fins.

By the looks of things it is a Demansoni.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.
