New additions.

These just came in today. I got these two keyholes from a seller on eBay. I think they look awesome! What do you guys think?

Very nice. A LFS in my area had a pair that looked similar. They weren't as hefty, and they had slightly lighter coloration. My next addition is either a keyhole or rainbow cichlid.

Thank you, I have been looking for these guys for a while. My lfs would get some from time to time but they were always less than an inch. These guys came from a dealer in Massachusetts.

Don't mean this to be offensive, but they're probably from an overbred bloodline. The lack of the distinct keyhole points to that, a problem often seen in keyholes in the hobby. It may become more prominent once they settle in, but the patterning and colors don't show the stress pattern as seen in the second pic


With that said, I still love them and am so happy to see others enjoying this awesome species as well! Great fish and good choice!
