I bought a mystery fish at an auction a few months.the only thing the bag said was "big mean and Ugly".So i bought it for a dollar brought it home put in my 125 gallon cichlid tank.Everything was kool.well i decided to convert the tank to saltwater so I put the fish on aquabid.com and listed it as a mystery fish.I got numerous emails telling me it was an arrow cichlid or amphilophus Zaliosus.Supposedly a very rare cichlid from lake apoyo in nicaragua and found nowhere else.Has anyone ever heard of this fish or know anything about it.I decided to keep it and bought a 55 gallon hexagon for it.Its doing great but I can only find limited info on the internet about it.Does anyone know where I can find out about it.Is it valuable? thanks for any help.

They were most likely right but do you happen to have any pictures of it? If it rare it may be hard to put an accurate price on it. Many rare things would only go to serious hobbyists and as such it would be as high as they are willing to pay.

Hey Rocky, were you the guy trying to sell it on Craigslist? If you could post pics I could tell you for sure if its an Arrow Cichlid. I collect a lot of rare fish. If it is an Arrow Cichlid then I can tell you from first hand knowledge that it is a critically endangered species.

Google it. I found lots of info on there. Sounds like it is very rare and that Jeff Rapps is the only person to first bring them to the states.
