100% water changes are extremely hard on fish as you completely change the water chemistry. I wouldn't do more than 50%.

Also, once those Fire Mouths start breeding, you are likely to loose a lot of those fish, especially the smaller more timid species.

Could you go to my albums and sext them? The last two pictures are the same firemouth. He changes color often. Anyone else please give your opinions too!

I would say at this point they are too small to try and sex.

Also so you know, Central and South American cichlids pair up instead of forming harems, so they don't benefit from overstocking.

Oh don't worry I'm not gonna try to overstock. If anything I'll slowly get rid of my SA cichlids
