I got the original 4 females from Joe, they are gorgeous, but he wasn't the best person to deal with and so I went with (I believe) mflash980 this time for the 4 males. They should be here tomorrow. I don't plan on keeping all 4, I plan on having 2 pair (hopefully) in 2 seperate tanks, I just want the best chance of getting 2 pairs..as soon as I see too much aggression and/or pairing up to begin they will get seperated and the extra 4 will be rehomed. I already have a couple of friends interested. No worries!
I don't know a ton about cichlids but I think I have all the bases covered and am being cautious about everythig I'm doing for them to give them the best possible lives.
