Hi everyone!
I just got this fish yesterday for my new cichlids setup. It was in that tank named “assorted mbuna” and was the only one in there that looked like this. Can someone help me identify it, please? It is silvery white with a large eye, one black horizontal stripe, and several vertical dark silver stripes. There is the faintest tinge of red on the edge of its dorsal fun. Thanks!!

I am sorry...I do not recognize that Mbuna...but I bet someone on here will. Don't lose heart...they might take a day or 2..summer is a busy time. I have learned (I also have mbunas) that when buying out of a mixed get mixed fish. They do interbreed. So what I have found is that I have fish that are not quite this or fact I have ones that change color ...and it is very hard to identify it now.

just my exp.
