Anyone know what kind of cichlid this is?
 
I got it from the bargain bin at the LFS for only $7 but it is beautiful and healthy and has a great personality. Non-aggressive, too. Thanks. Please click link below for short video.

looks like a red zebra cichlid which are fairly inexpensive but adds nice color to the tank. Definitely one of the more docile african cichlids but be careful because they can still be territorial.

Definitely a Psuedotropheus zebra. His colors are simply amazing. I have some wild caught and F1's that aren't as vivid as he is. I noticed that he is a male by the egg spot on his ventral fin. This fish would be a show stopper at most shows and could even do well in best of genus or breed.
