Yes well I had a lady argue for 15 minutes about that. She said they were south African cichlids lol. Wow some people just need to research a little and not argue with a person working in the pet industry for 8 years. Just had to get that off my chest.
I learned about cichlids the hard way...I introduced a convict into my tank of community fish, and he killed all the fish! Then for a while I had just a single blue gourami as he didn't care for company either Wish I had known about them before I bought them!
