Who’s that African Cichlid?

They’re one of the more commonly available Vic species. Wouldn’t surprise me in the least. Not a bad find for a big box store though 👍🏻

Hah. The big box stores often buy their cichlids as assorted, and they come in from one of the 2-3 biggest wholesalers out there. "Assorted" very often means "Whatever we have left that hasn't sold really well," and that's what they get. If there's that one stupid zebra obliq left over from last week's shipment, you can't put the next shipment of them in with him (or shouldn't), so... the easiest thing to do is toss him in a bag of "assorted," and off to Petsmart he goes. :)

Those Africans are so assorted they're coming from Central America. Or South America, depending on where you wanna place Panama... though I'm reasonably sure its not in Africa. ;)
