Generally if a cichlid has a blue face especially haps and peacocks it's a dead giveaway that it's a male

Awesome. You own one? Could you post a pic of yours? Do they tend to color up more? I know he's a little stressed from the new tank too. He is pretty big tho. Do they color up late? Sorry for the questions. Just wanna know everything I can about this guy. He is pretty sweet

That's about as colorful as he will get

I think it's a depleted bloodline :/

Well it's still pretty cool looking. How big do they get? And what size tank is yours in?
