    Question Mystery Cichlid


    0 Not allowed!
    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.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    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.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    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.
