So when I bought my assortment of baby cichlids I ended up with an orange one??? Any ideas it is 2.5 inches and has similar body shape as my labs

Could be a number of cichlids. With mbuna they are all so closely related that with out proper identification from the breedings then there is no guarantee on what you have. With that said my money would be on maybe a female or young male johanni being that it came from a big name chain.

Aceis are on the lower end of the agression. Also they mainly are herbivorous. In the wild they usually only use algae on sunken wood as their food choice. Beautiful fish tho IMO and in my experiences they swim at all levels in the aquarium.
