Keyhole Cichlids

These are the fish my wife got me for Valentine' Day. Not the best pics, but you get the idea...

Those are great pics if you ask me! Wish my fish would rest for 1 minute a day so I could get some good shots.

Thanks, Rich!

Those fish are slow movers, so they are pretty easy to catch, especially when they're hungry. I can definitely get them to 'pose' at feeding time...

They are really pretty. I've been wanting some Keyholes, but I don't really have the room for them atm. Gotta get another tank up first.

I've heard they can be pretty shy...is that your experience with them?

I expected them to be shy, but that hasn't really been the case. They pretty much settled right in from Day 1. In fact, my wife has somehow gotten them to eat flake food from her fingers. She must have a special bond with them because they don't let me go near them. They'll snuggle up to the glass when I'm there, but they run when I put my hand in the tank. Maybe I need a manicure or something.....
