I got him from a reputable LFS. He was sold to me as a johanni.

Looks like a Johanni, the maingano's are generally a lighter blue coloration. But since they both look very similar it's tough to be exact

Thanks everyone. I'm pretty sure he's a johanni. I've just heard a lot of horror stories about Lfs's. Hopefully I've found a good one.
