    I ended up picking this guy up to replace a lost fish. I have another post on that one trying to figure out what he is. I was hoping this one would color up or show his stripes more after he got comfortable but it didn't happen. He is the alpha in the tank so I would think he's comfortable and these are his real colors. He's about 3 inches or so.

    It looks like it may be a perlmutt cichlid ;)

    It does look like that. But in real life he's more bronze black. He lightens up a Lil when he's showing off or feeding time. He looks really light in that picture

    I could see that. I think I'm gonna trade him out for something else. Any suggestions?

    Could be, but mbunas mix with any other mbunas so is hard to tell
