Hi all, just curious if anyone can id this peacock cichlid. I've owned him for over a year, currently he is around 3.5 inches. He was sold to me by a breeder at a LFS
, the guy bred a few strains of cichlids that he said were high quality purebred fish but he has this practice of breeding them and placing all the juvies of similar size in sale tanks in the store together. There were several different species of cichlids in the display tank but he said he could differentiate them. This was sold to me as Aulonocara jacobfreibergi, but I am unsure as he seems a little too heavy bodied and the finnage doesn't quite match, specifically the rear of the dorsal.
Its no big deal, I'm just curious (not breeding or anything). So post your thoughts, hazard a guess, inform me if there's no way of knowing, all posts are welcomed. Sorry for the lengthy intro.
