Do you want to go with a central american themed tank or an african themed tank... or do you care? Which one do you like best?

Here are some profiles on various fish often referred to as jewel cichlids... just look here at the Hemichromis

I don't care because the tank is just pfs and rocks and I only want a pair of cichlid in it. I like firemouth a lot but feel the red jewel cichlid are more colorful anyone know the name of them?

Is it not listed in the link I provided? I googled it and it seems that Hemichromis lifalili and Hemichromis bimaculatus are commonly referred to as 'red jewel cichlids'.
