We have a lively tank of juvenile African cichlids that has been up and running for about six months. After some changes, losses, "fight-club" tank drama . . . we decided to add just a few new ones. The largest was immediately marked out for destruction by the dominant Yellow Lab. However, two smaller ones have adjusted just fine. One is clearly a venustus. But this one pictured here we are not sure about. Is this even an African cichlid? Or is it an American? It looks like it could possibly be a juvenile Salvini Cichlid, or maybe a young Rainbow cichlid. Our LFS actually didn't know . . . the fish in question, in the photos, is the smallest shown. Experts?? What say you??
