    So I got this fish today from a friend. Thought it was a blue alhi (Electric blue) very nice all blue bright and Shiney very blue metallic face about 3 inch definetly a male slight with tip on top fin and bottom fins have a very slight red orangutan appearence. He showed me the picture of the add on the tank when he bought it and to me something g doesn't jive to me. Labeled as this
    (Picture below)
    But a chilumba cichlid is a very nice bright blue peacock
    A pseudotropheous macrophthalmus looks nothing like a chilumba aulonocara. Here is a pic of the fish it self (pic a little dark) he's has white spots on its side just because it was with a very aggressive jewled. So not natural. So just a little confused about the label. Can anyone help??

    Looks like a peacock to me. The fish on that label is a mbuna.

    Looks like a common mistake that happens in petstores it was mislabeled.

    Yeah that's what I figured. Big als usually knows what they are talking about. But if you look up chilumba aulonocara. He's identical
