    Dear all,

    Was hoping you could help me indentify this fish, the local LFS had it listed as a Jewel Cichlid...but looks like New World Cichlid to me.

    Thanks to all as always

    definitely a cichlid but don't think it's a jewel cichlid. The white sand doesn't help and neither does the no background. Plus it's being bullied so its pretty faded :)

    I was thinking maybe Herotilapia multisponisa or one of the Cichlasoma but can't remember cichlids these days. damn old timers disease o_O

    Thank you very much! Hoping it's a rainbow Cichlid, tried to breed those once and the pair was infertile...be nice to rescue a pair from this LFS. Thanks again
