My wife saw these at the lfs
and likes them, and asked me to do some research. Apparently, everything about these fish, right down to the name itself (hence the quotes) is controversial. But it is difficult to get the straight scoop so I thought I'd ask here and see if anyone keeps these.
What I have been able to gleen so far: These are a hybrid fish, but you get different answers about what two (or more) species it came from, depending where you look. Some can't reproduce. Some can. They get fairly big. Some sources say up to 6 inches, some 8, some 10. Some say they are docile and can be kept in a community tank. Others say they are aggressive, but only toward other cichlids.
So, can anyone give me the straight scoop in these fish? How big do
they get? Are they aggressive? Would they work in a community tank?
I'm not sure I would get one even if they would work. But this is the research stage. So, what can people tell me?
