Yes, and no...they are cryptic much of the time, hanging out in and under plants, wood, etc....they are big (get to 4"..mine are 3") and hit food like hungry oscars. They are also a stream-dweller (probably hence the adaption to mouth-brooding), so I give mine some slow current.

Little update:

The simplex have spawned 3 times so far, and 3 times the male has swallowed the eggs They are getting all flirty again so this time iam going to try something else. I'll remove her after they spawn and leave the lights on 24/7, last time I left the lights on and he held them for a while but then the power went off and no more eggs
Heres some pics:
