Another type of butterfly ciclid?
So my LFS sold me another ciclid. Seemingly peaceful and attractive - but they told me this ciclid is a butterfly ciclid. It appears this is neither an African Butterfly ciclid or a blue ram. Any ideas what this "mutant" ciclid is?
This fish is roughly 3.25 long (an 1" bigger than my 2 blue rams) and sports 5 vertical lines like an African butterfly but seems to have ram-like fins and coloration.
Thanks. Would not mind finding a similiar or correct species for reference on this fish so all help would be appreciated.
BTW - this is a good fish. Smart, mellow, and playful.
