like what? ... almost no sexual dimorphism ,if you do get a pair very easy to breed , good with a planted tank ,spawn on flat stones , cluster of up to 300 eggs , after fry hatch they are carried to pits and guarded .

well they are rare sometimes but i found mine in a ram tank when petsmart used to bring rams in also Curviceps but they clear all curvis and put rams!!

get him non-agressive tank mates, you can keep it just like other dwarfs,just like harvick explained it

Yea i just got him at a LFS so im gonna see if they can get a couple more for me this one is a very interesting fish. Will he be fine in my American tank? or should he go in with the Ram tank once its up and running?

Nice find Robert.

id put it in ram tank , they are very peaceful cichlid and i dont know what you have in american tank but they would probably be harassed or worse killed
michael diaz » posted 2008/04/09 03:31 pm

sorry dan but i disagree on you suggestions..R kizel:most archocentrus could go( sajica, spirulum, etc, if you can get them)firemouth, salvini...quite limited..and remember, its always hard to introduce new cichlids in a tank with already established ones, especially with fish with attitude like yours!
Dan Noon (m) » posted 2008/04/09 06:18 pm  
Chuck, i misread the post. i meant that the curvicep should do ok with the fish i suggested. my bad
THE chuck » posted 2008/04/09 06:21 pm  
cool dan ,so for curviceps it sound good then
Dan Noon (m) » posted 2008/04/09 06:29 pm  
cool, i pay strict attention when you, Nate and others give advice. i would not have had a clue a year ago

Its probably not a good idea if you have it in a tank with gourami & tetras
Dee Casta

Its a jack dempsey
Alexander Langer

as said in the other picture, could be true. Aquidens (blue acara) are know
Alexander Langer

wow, great colors, beautiful!
Alexander Langer

it's still small, but to me it seems as a blue acara is plausible. Wait unt
