Perfect fish and nice pictures Lee.
Now when your fish gets older it looks more similar to mine (body shape mostly).
Did they reach 30 cm already?

Thanks Alex, the male that is pictured is just 11" the female around 10".

Are you still keeping your pair together?

Jonathan, to be honest both pearsei and regani have been some of the most peaceful cichlids i have kept. I always believe the size of the tank is one of the most important factors with cichlid aggression, they need respect and space.

You hear too many people cramming some of these fish in smaller tanks and they wonder why they become aggressive.

No problem with the size tank you have though. lol ;)

Yes, they still together in 220 gal, no love between, but nothing outrages what would make me worry about smaller one safety, occasional chasing while feeding or waiting for me to feed them. Most probobly same gender.
My larger Pearsei is around 35 cm and he is undisputed king of the tank. Good king though, not rough. Even Mota and large Cuban female move away when Pearsei want it.

Thanks Lee, I've got the opportunity to get some pearsei so I was wondering... :) And yes, there's very little aggression in the 1200 even though there's over 100 cichlids in there... including 9 midas... :shock:
