The colors and shape look a lot like some of the jack dempsey's out there and they are very common but other things like the stripes make me question that.. Does this store keep cookie cutter fish or do they dabble in cool stuff? Kyle
I only just discovered this store, but they do seem to have a good selection. Nothing very odd ball and not a great selction of cichlids but they have a lot of tetra/small fish. Everything they have looks pretty healthy.
The tank my fish was in was marked "Central American Cichlids" It had convicts, jewels, Dempseys, firemouths and a few others.
I asked about where they may have gotten my fish from and the lady said they had this fish for a month and it came is a shipment together with the other cichlids in the tank. she said they do not order those, they just get in shipments of "mixed central americans"
Looks like I have a variety of IDs here. LOL At least no one is saying it is a convict!
Is there a way to tell if it is African?
