New addition. ID please.

They were in the African Cichlid tank (Malawi) at the LFS. So I grabbed 2.

Yeah didn't mean to say they ARE Malawi just that they were in the tank with a bunch at the LFS. They were in a 75g and the guy said they were holding there own so I picked up 2 on a store credit.

Yeah that's them!! And thanks. I know some may frown for mixing but I like to have a variety of all different "wow" factor fish in my "show" tank. It just makes for GREAT conversation when everyone is always like what is that and oh wow what is this! Or holy ...... What is that!! I like the fact that I have a mixed tank right or wrong I like it. And if we all went by the book I feel the hobby would never grow, JMHO.

Sorry if I insult some but it's jut how I feel.
