Not sure exactly what this is. The guy I got it from identified it as a type of deep water hap. When it is fully colored it is very dark with a light strip across the top. When it isn't colored up it has 3 dark spot down its side. These arent the best pics but may get me an answer. Thanx for any help in advance.

My only full shot of him.

Definitely Copadichromis spp

I would not rule out Azureus as if they are unhappy, they are quite dark. Get a decent pic of him.

The first pic it looks like a Otoph. lithobates ...the lil blaze that is developing in pic 3 kinda verifies that as well....although, the color is a little dark.

It could be a cross, with perhaps a m'loto, or a copad. melas.....just my 2 cents.
