    Meet Taco, Dick, and Guido. :D

    Guido is the flashy one, Dick is the big one (named such because he IS one), and Taco is the pink one (named such because the other two keep taking nibbles out of her).

    Cichlids rule!

    Can't imagine why I'd find aggressive fish so fascinating. :D

    Love it when they get big enough to uproot their own surroundings, and do a little redecorating.

    Other than trying to take nibbles out of Taco because he/she "looks different" (I'm guessing), not so much. Course, they all have their own space, so...

    Well, maybe if you hadn't named him "taco" they wouldn't think him was for eating! doyathink? :eusa_eh:



    kidding aside they are very pretty.

    Oh, I don't name them until after they've displayed their personalities, and earned said names.

    (Guido's a little attention whore - always the first one up to the glass, dancing back and forth when I get there)

    Not if you know how to care for them, and give them what they need, as opposed to what's "pretty".. As they get older, the plants and stuff come out, and much larger stones, and caves go in.
