Thank you Alex,

I'm in Portland, Oregon. I got the pair from Dan at TNT Aquatics, they are from the Rio Camecha (spelling?)

Thanks nutty, :D

I agree, although I've heard alot of folks say "who needs trimacs when you can have flowerhorns?" :shock:

Yeah, very nice CA, indeed.
I had one back in 90's, very good quality and you'll be surprise I got it from just local Petland in Brooklyn. Of course it was called "Jack Dempsey", lol.
BTW, my friend just got one from reputable source, but I swear, it looks to me just a regular FH.
It has this irridescent hue, ocelatus spots, all belongs to the FH, and it's hard for me to believe this fish is a pure Trimac. But again, the person he got the fish from is very reputable.
Here it is, John's Trimac, I post picture with his permission.

Very nice pair i am new to this site,i just registered. The true TRIMAC is in my top 5 favorite cichlids. At a young age this pair is beautiful. They will only get better. It is a shame that that the TRUE TRIMAC IS VERY HARD TO FIND. I purchased a so-called trimac that when younger looked more like a low grade flowerhorn. As he grew i think that it might be a TRIMAC. I will try and post a picture it is just very hard to get a shoot of him because he is not high on the food chain in my tank. Alex what's up brother? Again Norbert very nice pair. It is good to see that the true trimac is still found in the hobby. :D :)

Thank you Tony and fishluvr12,

Tony- I agree it is a shame trimacs are not more common, they are my favorite Central American.

fishluvr12- I still think your fish is a flowerhorn, but who knows? I've certainly been wrong before :D
