Lol yeah, I keep trying to get a better pic to show his color better but like I said he's a jerk. Hopefully he will calm down when he gets some girls.

Territorial disputes between female apistos are super brutal, makes the males look like sissies and quite often lead to death.

I always thought cacs where peaceful species compared to some of the others? Do you have same sex in one tank or do you have mixed species?

They may be mild as far as aggressive cichlids go..they're certainly feisty when they want to be though.. I moved the extra female panduro in with them as a little experimemt.. so far it's been ok but I'm not in the business if killing fish so I'll probably take her back to lfs..
