Solet7

I own two fire mouth chiclids one is a grayish color with black stripes when u bought him he was about 2 1/2 - 3 inches and the other one was about 1 1/2 in the 1 1/2 in looked grayish with black stripes but over a few weeks it turned bright yellow is this bad? Is this normal?

I'm wondering if its possible this fish was mislabeled at the store and is in fact a different type of cichlid. . . red devil or pink jack dempsy maybe? I know a lot of cichlids look different as juveniles (both pattern and color). Can't say I'm an expert on these types of cichlids though so hopefully others will chime in.

It's indeed an Amphilophus. Wether it's A. citrinellus (Midas cichlid) or A. labiatus (red devil) I can't tell from the picture. But for sure no Thorichthys.
