Hello Mike.

I've moved you're thread to our cichlid section. Hopefully you will have better luck getting an answer here.

I'm sure people on here will help you, it's tough to expect a lot of responses in less than two hours...

Its a male. You can tell by the sharp looking anal fin, and the bright facial markings. Also, his orange rim is pretty bright. Good looking fish!

For that size, thats a pretty moderate price. At least in my area it is. I work at a fish shop and we are selling 'balloon green terrors' for $30 each. We got 2 they are very young. Im not sure what the balloon part is all about but they are shorter in length and fatter. But back to your
Point, that sounds like a fair price to me!

Ok thank you. And balloon terrors from wht i heard are shot up with hormones to make them grow faster but they dont get as big and have very short lifespans. Please dont sell these.

Balloon refers to a defect that they began line breeding which is also seen in rams and mollys. I'm against all "balloon" variants since they are for the most part an unhealthy inferior blood line
