    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 smile Wish I had known about them before I bought them!

    Sorry no one told you about convicts and why they are called that.  Convicts are also one of the easiest fish to breed in the cichlid world.  So be glad you didn't get a male and female.
