ID unknown fish

Hello Pam.

A friend of mine sent me this photo yesterday, I'm not pretty sure if it's a cichlid, what do you think about it??? I haven't seen it before, maybe you can help me with this deal.

Regards from Mexico City Pam and thanks for the help :D

Hi efenberg,

I am not sure what you have going their. I am not convinced it is a cichlid? But also it could be a juvenile, yellow fins like that can be juvenile markings in some species. The other striking clue is the eye, they are huge, must be a fish found in deeper waters.

I wish I could be of more help.
