Old world or new world

Just a question I've been thinking of. Do you prefer old world or new world cichlids and why?. I'm on the fence. New world cichlids are beautiful but old world cichlids are amazing in terms of evolution.

oscar will chime in soon to bash me and them lol but i'm totally old world. I love the colors of them and how they act, and the aggression of mine makes things interesting! I also love how they will change colors! Plus they are pretty easy to breed so thats a plus too!
