    The way I usually remember the type of fish I have is by their common nick names, although this one didn't have a nickname and when I asked Andy (my #1 go to fish man) he gave me an outrageously difficult name to pronounce. So of course I ended up forgetting :( but he did reassure me that he would be fine with my current cichlids. I'm just baffled that I can't find his specific name lol
