What Kind of Cichlid is This?


New member
My cousin got a cichlid as a present and she wants to give it to me. I’ve never had one, i only kept bettas; gold fishes, guppies, angel fish, platy and mollies. I don’t know what kind of cichlid it is and don’t know how to take proper care of it, i watched some videos and documented about them but i cant really find a lot of things because i dont know what kind of chiclid it is.
She only sent me one pic and i will post it here and hope you guys can help. Thank you !!

It looks like a Black Convict. Convicts are South American Cichlids and pretty hardy fish. Welcome to Cichlidaholics.
