Thank you. I got them for 88 cents a piece. They seem to fit in well with my to adult female dempseys and juvenile convicts, and a gold fish? Don't know how he made it.

I'm never good at this, but the first one kinda looks like a Astatotilapia "Tomato" or a "Thick skin" that would be from the Lake Victoria area (east Africa)

Of course I could be way off but I try lol!

And I think the names you used and I used are the same fish anyway! I'm terrible at it and you never can tell till you see them color iPod in good water etc. at least I know I can't.
