    DefaultWhat Cichlid is this?

    In a recent tank rescue I picked up a whole bunch of Convict Cichlids, a pair of Nicaraguan Cichlids, a Pleco, some T. dubosi and unknown Cichlid. I couldn't believe all these fish were kept together ... I am wondering if someone could help identify the unknown?

    Thanks for the update this seems the closest that has been suggested ... I think this matches closer than a juvenile Salvini judging by internet photos. Pictures of juvenile Cichlasoma urophthalmus seem to be a better match.

    I will be selling this fish and a pair of Nicaraguan Cichlids if anyone is interested?

    All fish are about 5" what would be a fair price? I'd rather they go to hobbyists that want these fish. If you are interested please text (604) 240-0962 or PM me.
    Small fish room, 19 tanks - various sizes.

    I keep most of my breeding groups in biotope tanks. I remove pairs or breeding groups to special tanks to spawn and raise fry. Cichlids are what I breed mostly but have an interest in catfish - corys & dwarf plecos.
