i need help with a cichlid

Post by babymoos »

My cousins 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 !!

See if she can send you some better and clearer pics because the one you posted isn't clear enough.

It's a Convict, probably male. Not a very clear picture, but the ID seems pretty evident.
