Rescued this fish last night. He/she is very shy so far, and runs from the camera. I was told it is a west African cichlid that gets to about 4 inches. Any help would be appreciated.

If you're talking about the striped fish near the top of the fixture, I agree we need a better pic, but just based on that I'm going to hazard possibly Corydoras sterbai?

If there's a Cichlid in that photo, all I can see is an eyeball, and I'm afraid my eyeball IDs are pretty lacking LOLOL

I will keep looking. Behind his eye is an eyespit with a patch if orange. The body is all that grey, but the dirsal has an iridescent stripe on top.

He is very shy. He has been in a shipping bag for 18 days
