Comments: Nice fish. Colours change with age along with patterns. Can change colours, depending on mood, quickly. Will eat very small tankmates but won't usually bother anything too big to swallow. Territorial towards others of its own kind and other Cichlids. Can hold its own against larger Cichlids but dont put it with Jaguars, Convicts or other extremly agressive fish. Small Jack Dempseys or Green Terrors (2-6in.) will be OK for a while. Males dont seem to like each other. Great fish.
