    Hard to see, but kind of looks like it. Could you get a pic of the side?

    Not a great angle on the photo, but I'd say it's a Bumblebee. Male seems most likely.

    Aquaman4life. Male bumblebee cichlids will change colors over the course of time. While females stay the same color.

    Yes, this is correct. So males are probably more yellow and brown. Is there a way you can compare it to another bumblebee (maybe even a female). Though, I am very sure that is a bumblebee.

    Here are a few more pics of that fish above. I do have a female bumblebee which he chases sometimes.
