Thread: Mystery Cichlid
07-24-2012, 02:36 AM #1
I know it sounds like a stupid question, but I bought a cichlid at my local aquarium shop, but it is closed for a week and I can't remember what type of fish it was. It was about three inches long when I bought it, mostly silver with a little bit of blue tint, it has red tipped fins, and a black spot right behind both of its eyes. It is shaped like the average cichlid is. Not very long, but not wide or tall like an oscar. Any ideas? Thanks.

A picture of your fish would be very helpful.If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
The truth is not something you hide behind but what you stand on!
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Yes, Green Terror does look similar but the spot behind its eye is closer to its eye, it is still small though. I tried to take a picture but they are still nervous about big things outside the tank, so they always are hiding when I come into the room. Thanks for all your help.
