Mystery fish *help*
yesterday i bought a fish at my lfs. he was the last one of the whole batch they sold so he did not have a label on his tank (he had been moved into a tank with some frogs). he looked so cool and the employee of the fish store said he would be a good community fish even though he looked like a cichlid. so i bought him for like $12 and brought him home. he is doing great and loves his sunken ship in the tank. the problem is that the employee at the fish store was new and could not remember the name of the fish. all i know is that he is a cousin of a cichlid and that his species name is apparently hard to remember. i have attached a picture someone please help.
I dunno, but he's really pretty. What kind of fish do you have him with now?
he is in my 29 gallon with:
2 Red Wag Platies
1 Sunburst Platy
1 Mickey Mouse Platy
1 Opaline Gourami
and an African Dwarf Frog named Kermit
The mystery fish's name is MooShoo. he does his own thing and sometime schools with the platies, no nipping, chasing or anything. the most unique thing about him is his tail.
i think he's a kribensis.
looks like a "Agassiz's dwarf cichlid" just colors seem off to be one other wise size markings of the eye and fins are dead on.. http://diszhal.info/halak/Apistogramma_agassizii.jpg
Pelvicachromis Pulcher. awesome thanks for the help. i guess he is a cichlid then.
karls he looks like your picture too. he has got that blue tint on his cheeks in the right light. well at least now its narrowed down.
Agassiz's dwarf cichlid thats what he is. well now im thinking he is a she. haha
Ya he looked familiar, but what has me confused is the coloring, I know the females are not as colorful as the males, maybe he is a she..
well the color is there but the little joker wont stay still. my camera doesnt do him/her justice. is he/she a fairly common species?
