Can anyone identify the fish below? I'm thinking maybe albino Midas or Red Devil but I'm not super familiar with those fish.

Part two of my question is, I have 125g with two 8" Os, this fish is about 10"-11", depending on what it is can I add it to my tank or will my oscars suffer because of it. This fish is so beautiful that I don't want to pass it up but I don't have a second tank large enough right now and my Os are my #1 priority.

Thanks!

midevil (midas x red devil hybrid). They are typically very mean to other cichlids and will want to dominate the aquarium. It is rare to find a passive one.

I don't like how there are feeders in the background. If you decide to take the chance, you should quarantine this fish for at least 1 month and treat for parasites and watch for any disease.

This fish will shred your Oscars. Pass on it unless you want to invite disaster.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

There are white Midas and rd it is not albino. None of the amphilophus fish make good tank mates for oscars.
