Yup that's a Zebra Cichlid or a blue Cichlid I have one that changes colors here n there when the water gets warmer in some areas or when it goes over by the heater and stays there for a few min then it changes and shows its stripes

its definetly an african cichlid and like previously stated probably a cobalt blue zebra. i have a pair in my african tank and it looks very similar to mine

they prefer water with a ph of 7.8-8.4 eat mostly vegetable matter and like temps in the mid 80's. they grow to about 6 inches and are relatively aggressive.

hope this helps

Warning..I will offend you at some point!!!


my goal is simple a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all
