I am sending you photo of a fish I have that was sold to me as firemouth

Hmmm, defiantly not a firemouth. it might be a green terror, but i'm not sure.

it might be a green terror but the pic is a little small to be able to tell

I'm 90% sure its a green terror, but its a small pic. Look up green terror in google images and compare it to your fish.

Green terror shown below. I was not allowed to copy the pic.

And it's identical to yours.

I agree. When I first got into Malawi cichlids a few years ago I was sold a "bumble bee" that turned out to be a johannii. The first WC I did he turned from yellow and black stripes to blue and black and I couldn't figure out what had happened. LOL. From then on I researched as much as I could before a purchase. On the plus side I now have found a lfs that sells 100% pure fish. Never a mutt. I still have the old boy.

I didn't think Green terror. Markings are wrong. The stripes made me think very uncolorful Dempsey. Maybe it's a Green Terror/Jack Dempsey Hybrid. I was able to magnify the pic. Even with the pic that small it's definately not a firemouth. Wrong shape even....let alone color.
