  • $\begingroup$ It looks like albino mouthbrooder for me, actually there is a SE site that is more suited for species identification, it's Biology SE, would you mind to have this question migrated there? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Biology.SE! For identification questions please edit your post to include the location (e.g. country and region — the more specific the better) where this creature originated. The location can be an essential clue for identifications. ——— Clear, closeup photos of the creature from multiple angles would also be helpful. ——— Please also take the tour and then go through the help pages starting with How to Ask questions effectively on this site. Thanks! 😊 $\endgroup$

An African cichlid. Because it is apparently albino you may not find an exact match. Start looking under "apistogramma".

  • $\begingroup$ it is a poor picture,over exposed and out of focus so i am not sure it is an albino cichlid. $\endgroup$ Oct 17 '20 at 18:53
