What's The Best Looking Cichlid

Well the ugliest thread is fun so how about another one regarding the best looking cichlid.

Rules.
1. No Hybrids, I don't consider them cichlids.
2. No criticizing everyone's choices.
3. Must use scientific name.
4. Must post a picture of your choice.

Mine of course is the Excichlasoma festae, I'm sorry but all cichlids swimming pale in her comparison.

I dare post a picture, even though it is not quite as cool looking as HUKIT's.

Here is Aequidens rivulatus!

You could also throw Vieja synspilum onto the list. I'm sorry old word guys I don't think you stand a chance again. Here is one a Mo Devlins fish, for anyone who is not familiar with Mo's work should visit some of his sites. He post on some of the bigger sites in threads titled "Today in the fishroom".
