Re: Alarming interest in hybrids

This was an interesting post. I have never been enthused or impressed with hybrids. Matter of fact I never thought for 1 second that a hybrid ever compared to what nature has given to mankind. I also don't think that mankind has been kind to nature. We know many things come down to dollars and cents...

Re: Greetings from uruguay

I have realized that also. That many cichlid really enjoy the temporary feel of cooler water. It also can put them in the spawning mood.

You seems to be for me a strange guy !!!

For your information there are many wrong informations about this species in the description.

I can not sex them at their current size. You have an awesome fish that only looks better as they get older bigger. Don't see them around much. I see you are from Philly.

Re: My cichlid photos

@bennymoreno: I think it would help if you say what type of fish it is. Not everyone know everything. Some fish are not as common as others.

Re: Have anyone?

They are a beautiful fish. I had 6 but around 6 inches they became aggressive for dominance which brought me to having 1 pair. Mine spawned regularly. They can be a little shy at times. But definitely a show fish.

Re: What kind of cichlids are these?

I did not realize that in a fish store the assorted tank meant that they don't know what kind of fish are in there. To me that would be called a hybrid tank. Assorted tank to me is one that has Dempsey, Red Devils, Salvinis, etc.

How big is that tank. Do you have intentions to someday move them.
