She occasionally tried to bite my fingers at the glass but seems alot more interested in eating than anything else.
She loved her cave and spends a good amount of time defending that space.
Despite no other cichlids being with her she still displays nice coloration and dominant attitude.
She has got to be very close to 8 inches at this point. Been in my care since end of March 2018, so her growth seems on the higher end compared to what I have read online. No idea if that means she will be a big girl or not but so far it's looking that way.
The way our new house layout is and where I want her tank to be, the biggest tank size I can fit comfortably would be a 60x24x30 inch. I feel this will be a good size for life for her and the barbs.
