Thanks, I did eventually find a page about them.

Any hints on a good food type?

I would assume cichlid pellets of some sort. I've never kept one myself.

That's a green terror?

Do they develop the extended forehead as they mature?

My green terror doesn't have that, but then again he's a juvenile.

As for food, mine eats cichlid pellets, sinking cichlid pellets, flakes, baby krill, anything that sinks slowly enough for him to grab before it hits the gravel.

I thought a female Green Terror doesn't develop a hump on her forehead?
