It's a cichlid! looks to me like a hybrid. What do you have in the tank with it because mbuna cichlids are pretty aggressive?

It's in with a peacock and.... I have been deployed for 7 months so I don't remember the rest it's in a 90 gallon with tons of cover the only 2 fish I'm worried about is my peacock and placo but the placo is ... Huge about 12 inches long he's a monster and the tank is fairly under stocked. I have never had an embuna but it sorta looks like one

Male Melanochromis auratus. Looks like he's still transitioning into full dominant colors.

The auratus can be really aggressive I'm dealing with mine now, I've been contemplating on getting rid of him.

Ya, we have a couple of these in our tank and they seem to be fine. Not that aggressive compared to the other two Demasoni cichlids that we have.

We have the the dark version and the mostly yellow version. They are cool cichlids.

Yea the yellow ones are the females and since you have both that could keep the aggression down and yea those demasonis are little but fear less
