Festae thread!

So i will be getting my exCihlasoma festae tomorrow!! Im extremely excited haha! There will be 17+- and 14 will be 1" and 3 will be 1.5"-2.5". I will separate a 55 and keep them in there for now until my stand is built. Pictures and everything will be uploaded when the fish arrive.

Just a few ?s.
I bought some dried krill and beafheart. This will NOT be there main foods that will be NLS 1mm cichlid pellets. Which is better? Cichlid or growth formula nls? Also, will the occasional beefheart and krill help the grow a bit faster? Thanks!

Woah. So different. I was wondering that when I saw them at the store. I was think, I recognize the name! They were in a tiny tank with a few cichlids though so they must be compatible?

Beautiful fish. I've never seen one of those cichlids in person.
