Look for clouded eyes, make sure their eyes are clear, if you can, ask them to feed them, make sure the eat properly ect. If they don't eat properly that can mean a sing of stress or disease. If they are small, like 1-2inches there should be very little colour. They should be brown with black stripes. If they are small and have colour that means they are faslely colouried when they were young which means you cannot properly breed them when they are older! I'm not an expert though!

Look for round circular body's not elongated body's look at the eyes they should be proportionate to the body not really big. Look at there foreheads it should be wide and thick not skinny or pointed. Ask to see them eat if they don't eat like a pig don't take them.

I know it's supposed to be a Cichlid thread, but I agree it's beautiful!
I might start saving my pennies to find one when I'm not such a beginner.
