    I have had multiple discussions about what type of fish this is in our shop. Some saying a Bacourti, another person said African Tilapia and another said possible paretroplus Madagascar. Please tell me your thoughts!

    I’m not super familiar with larger cichlids but it definitely doesn’t look like a tilapia. It also does not look like a paretroplus because those have forked tails and rounded dorsal and anal fins. Theraps bocourti looks like a good match in body and fin shape

    Not a C. bocourti aka chisel tooth cichlid because the color is completely wrong. It doesn't have the patterns of any Madasgacar cichlid. The mouth kind of looks wrong for a tilapia. My guess, hybrid cichlid.

    Is it possible that this fish is an immature or stressed/non-territorial one that isn't showing full colors? As for being a tilapia, tilapia mariae
    has a prominent opercular spot that this individual seemingly lacks.
