Done.
Reason: It posted in the 'Introduce Yourself' section because you forgot to change the category. :crazy:

Your going to need a LARGE tank to hold such a group!!!

Each fish will grow up to 20" (approx)
Very aggressive if guarding fry

Also (as far as I remember) refered to as "Borbeleto"

as a rule of thumb Id say you need a Length of tank to depth ratio of 30%

I.e. if tank was 10ft long you would really want it about 3ft deep

It could be a beautiful setup, unfortunatel out of my kinda size and budget range tho

Yeah huge tank needed alright because they're big swimmers as well. I had three cichla ocellaris and they outgrew my 7' * 2' tank in no time at all.

Great fish though and they hit food at some speed. Soak the place :)

I am liking the idea all ready build the tank around the fish so if I start with 6 ft tank one year later I have 10ft so I can keep such fish
