We just call him the Christmas fish because he shows a lot of green and red when he gets pissed lol I would like to find out what he really is tho. It was so hard to tell when I bought him because he didn't have much color at all when he was a baby I was hoping he would of been a fulu

Looks just like him but have also seen some that have a lot more color and are still called flamebacks. some cichlids are just really hard to id.that's funny because I'm buying one of the zebras this weekend

Ele tric blue Johanni are usually not the real Johanni and are maingano. Melanochromis cyanerhabdoes is the name o the maingano. Look em up. Likely what u got and much more compatible w other mbuna. I have 5 and love em!
