I purchased 7 fish online. i order one Compressicep. Once I turned my lights on after 24 hours I noticed that my supposed eye eater doesn't look like a eye eater at all but something like my other peacocks. This fish is all white but no red eyes so no albino. When I called the place and told them my concern the guy started changing his answers and sort of not making sense. He continued to try to tell me that my Orange dwarf cichlid that I ordered was the eye biter and I had the two confused.. The issue is that I know my Orange flash is my Orange flash and NOT a eye biter. Can you please take a look at both of these fish and let me know what you think. Thank you in advance. I'm generally pretty good at IDing fish so that is why I am sure I was sent the wrong fish.

Well... whatever they are, they are certainly not D. compressiceps (Eyebiter). Pic 3 and 4 look like Aulonocara maylandi to me.

The other one (with two stripes) looks like a Chilotilapia rhoadesii to me. Hope you got some room in your tank :lol:
