JkdJedi, Yes, its a cichlid. South American.... I've kept this species before.

crawdaddy, No, but im in the right place to learn! I'd feel comfortable with them if i did get some though. I've always wanted them, so i have researched them on and off for a few years now.

When I first wanted them, I also did alot of research. And everywhere I read said "beware of bloat". I was freaked out , and price , take a loan from the bank.
So I found some fry from a local guy cheap and now I'm addicted to tropheus.
They have a bad rap. Just keep the water clean, don't change the food, everything should be fine.

Thats what i was thinking... Bloat being a bit over rated. As long as i do as you say, i should be fine.

Price wise, im not worried about it. It was more so that i couldnt find what i wanted in the quantity i wanted them in, in time...
