Hello DarkOwl!

I'm pretty sure that the fish pictured is an Acei Cichlid. They are an mbuna african cichlid native to Lake Malawi. They usually are a bright, beautiful blue or purple colour when they are fully grown and comfortable.

African mbuna, looks a lot like a stressed ice blue zebra. Looks like you’ve got it with American cichlids, not the greatest idea as they have different requirements and behaviors.

Thanks! I'm going straight back to my lfs . I didn't think about it twice when I was there but when I got home I took a closer look and for the most part it was the employees telling me it's going to fine. I'm keeping an eye on him for now.

He's eating and swimming everywhere though
