    Was wondering on exact ID on this cichlid, was brought in to the lfs. Seem to noticeably move using their longer pectoral fins IMG_20190419_164344_1_BURST045.jpgIMG_20190419_164323.jpg

    Mozambique Mouthbrooder, Oreochromis mossambicus. The white chin and the red on the caudal fin (usually more of it) are fairly good identifiers in males. Mostly used for food fish breeding these days, hybridized with other species. Easily reaches a foot in length.
