No, I saw it at my LFS recently, and I'm not big into cichlids, but I kept thinking about this little dude

Definitely an Electric Blue Jack Dempsey like demeter says. They actually are sadly very weak and expensive. They have to sell them tiny like that because a lot of them die before they grow to reasonable sizes.

Electric Blue Jack Dempsey .
They were developed the same time as EBR ,powder blue DG and EBA.
They are one that has done the worst.[yea worse then DG!]
A stunning fish most arrive in sad shape and die young.
I know one breeder who is working them now in PA. Not sure he has fry yet or if they have even breed for him yet .
They are /can be a great looking fish .
My buddy Klauses EBJD ;

Interesting to know, that's a real shame. Poor little dude. At least my LFS is an amazing one and will ensure that he's going to a good home for however long he has left.

Haha, yeah, I wish I could, but I'm not that big on cichlids. And I already have my hands full with my nine tanks, lol!
