I have had this guy for about 6 months now and still cannot figure out what type of African Cichlid he is. When I asked the pet store where I purchased him what type of Cichlid he was the answer I got was "African cichlid", as if I didn't already know that lol. Also one other question, he is the dominate of the tank, and seems to beat up on my Jack Dempsey, is it ok to have them in a 55 gallon together? Any tips, or advance is appreciated!!

Looks to be a Mbuna cichlid from lake Malawi in Africa. Possible whats commonly refered to as a blue zebra or some other psudotropheus sp.
