Hello, I recently went to my LFS and they had this single African Cichlid fry in a tank by itself. I have a newly cycled tank for stocking so I decided to grab him however when I inquired about the species the person there only knew it was an African Cichlid and nothing else any help? If you can't really tell from the photo there are very light blue lines across the fry’s body.

Hard to tell at that age my mbuna fry look like that till their color starts Coming in. Your best bet is waiting for to grow a bit more

Thank you all for the help so far I will definitely wait but the fish seems to have developed a blue line on his pelvic fin are there any fish that have the same characteristics?

A lot of fish with blue lines in the African cichlid category really doesn’t narrow it down yet and if is hybrid which it might be won’t help you at all.
