okay friends...i just now noticed yet another fish in my 55 that idk what it is.
i first thought that it was a female kennyi for the longest time. it was slightly blue with the black stripes down it like all kennyi females do.
but recently i saw the spot that males have on their fins on the bottom. so idk what it is. any help is appreciated.

Do you have a pic of the fish in question? It would help alot. Males tend to have more egg spots than females, and males tend to turn yellow. So you may still have a female. How old is the fish?

We need a photo of the fish. There's several dozen african cichlids that look like that ;)

Thats a zebra of some sort, can just barely make out the stripes. your best bet is to buy a good book (Dr. Herbert R. Axelrod, has a really nice one and will help you with all your ID, plus its a really nice way to plan on your next pet, as it is full of great pics and info.
