Need help identifying

Post by Zwhiteddeel » Fri May 18, 2018 9:39 pm

I bought this and they sold it to me as a firecracker cichlid but it doesn’t look anything like that. I can’t find anything online about what it is either.

There's no photo attached. The only cichlid I know of offhand that is a 'firecracker' is a colour morph of leleupi.

Tropheus sp. 'red' Moliro is known as "firecracker".
