Fish ID: Which Tanganyikan cichid is this?


Recommended Posts

I purchased this fish months ago at a local store that advertised it as Tanganyikan but it wasn't labeled. It looked like a young Ophthalmotilapia ventralis to me but as it has gotten older its colors have not changed and it has barely grown or developed any defining features of that species. It has been thriving in my Tanganyikan community and is very boisterous. 

after some research, I'm starting to believe it's some sort of Callochromis but I cannot be certain. Any ideas?
