Unidentified Cichlid

Post by chibimunkey » Thu Jul 01, 2004 3:43 pm

I bought several cichlids about 2 years ago and I still have three of them. A blood parrot fish, Melanochromis auratus, and an unknown fish. The fish's body frame resembles that of a minnow. The fins are not very prominent, and are not exactly something noticed seeing as they are not too big but not too small. The body is a light grey with multiple horizontal orange stripes. There are really no other obvious or noticeable markings other than these. PLEASE HELP! :lol:

Is there any way you can get a picture posted of the mystery fish?

Do you know a friend that does have a digital camera? They could maybe try taking a pic for you that you can maybe show.
