    I need to know if I have to buy a new tank or give my fish away. Is my fish an actual lab.

    Looks like a lab to me. Why do you think you need to give your fish away?
    LeoDiaz is a cichlid expert.

    Looks like a lower grade yellow lab. Have any better pic of it?

    Its been in this tank for a year and a half now, I have no money currently to get a new tank. And I have no space for a tank that massive.

    Are there any stores that may take them ?

    Any pet store that sells fish should. My local Petco does.

    You can try advertising for someone to take them on! Cichlids are always popular.

    Are there any fish I can get for my 10 gallon once I give away my cichlid.

    His growth is stunned he so small for the time you had him for he is a fish that can get 5inches big in a tiny 10g tank.

    But every time I look at the fishy it doesn't seem miserable, its always swimming around.

    Is a 35 gallon big enough ?

    Fish swim, no matter what size tank they're in. If they stop swimming in the wild they're likely to die, so they just keep swimming.

    They're an active fish. If LeoDiaz says they need a 4 foot long tank, believe him.
