Hi. Ive just recently bought a new tank which came with some american chiclids. I decided to home them for abit. I personally collect african and marine fish. I wantes to move the fish on but try and return some of my money. I was recently offered £15 for the lot and i didnt think that was reasonable as they are all of some size. I bielive to have 1 possibly 2 jack demseys, a firemouth and a few gouramis and a choclate something lol
This is to the best of my knowledge and any advise would b appreciated. I just thort £15 quid was a bit low... do i just av high expectations but i thort jack demseys could read £20-£30 on the own.

Thankyou

Possibly a rotkeil Severum and chocolate cichlid as well?

I don't see a fire mouth in there

And that second to last pic is a beautiful male three spot gourami

The electric blue jack Dempsey is an expensive fish by itself. They sell for $30 usd for a 2" dish

Pic 11 could be a chocolate cichlid, I never seen them blotchy like that. They are usually one color or the other.

Side not- chocolate cichlids were my first introduction to SA/CA cichlids. And fish in general. One of my all time fav fish. They change color with their moods.

Thnx for that. That was great.
i had an issue with pics uploading but i think i got there in the end. Just about understanding whati got getting slightly attached lol
Would it b worth pairing tht jack trying to breed if it was the only pair in tank.. if it reaches $30 does it increase in value here in the uk?

That is definitely a splotchy chocolate Cichlid (H. temporalis. I have one and he often changes colors like that with moods. One of my favorite fish.

What size tank did all these fish come in? Quite a few of these get fairly large.
