Found this frontosa to adopt, I have never seen one like this. It is the best pic I could get of him. Look at his mouth!!! What the hell?

I will try to get a better pic soon. Might pic him right out of the tank, but I don't want to do that tonight, I just got him a few hours ago.

The face looks petrochromis or haplechromis.

it looks like an African just not a front, I saw a few rift lake cichlids in a book that I was looking at that had the frontosa like striping and get large, just cant remember what they were....

It is also a bad angle to tell but... I believe it is a Frontosa. The farhead and top fin fit the characteristics of a Fronts. I am not an expert on Fronts and have never kept them, so lets see what everyone else says.

It is a deformed Frontosa. Bad mouth and bad stripping too! F1000000000 probably.
