Red Faced Cichlid

Does anyone have a red faced cichlid. They get large and the males have a hump on their head.

I've always thought they were a good looking fish and I'd like to learn more about their care before I purchase one.

You going to have to be more specific about what fish you are talking about. Is just the face red?

Yes as there quite a few possibilities, the best example would be Paratheraps synspilum. This is Mo Devlins pair, quite possible the best looking Cichlid on the planet( at least in my opinion they are). I have 2 pairs of wild caught synspilum but I don't have any pictures on my ipad.
