lol ok just trying to make sure we are all on the same page lol.... i dont keep those types of fish so my knowledge is limited on them. for me natural means the same as from the wild. there are a ton of fish that been selective breed and dont look much like they would if you got wild ones.

Chad, once you figure out whether thats a male or female, you should get the opposite, hope they pair, and make lots of money... assuming they breed? I know about as much about SA/CA cichlids as I do about planets that have not been discovered yet
