Definitely an african cichlid. Probably too big for the tank.

It is definitely an electric yellow lab cichlid.

It will need a way bigger tank than 10g, and it's not at all compatable with community type fish.

They're really nice fish, but go in an mbuna cichlid tank, vs. a tropical type set up.

Congrats on the new tank!

It's a yellow lab, like CF said. I'd try to rehome it, they really need a 4' tank. It's a malawi mbuna, a type of african cichlid.

Tallenskinny, aren't you one of the other people that lives right around me? A student at CSUMB i think? I'll ask a friend that keeps africans if he'd like another yellow lab if that's the case. Might be able to rehome it for you real fast then, because unfortunately none of the stores around here will take it from you I don't think.
