Agree on that, given the tank decorations, they like leaves and roots.

Really nice fish when they mature, I had some about 4 years ago.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

It is better to use the scientific name, so everyone in the world will know exactly which fish you are considering.

I just did a Google of "inca cichlid" and two very diofferent cichlids came up. The images for "inca cichlid" are about as varied as one could imagine, even including birds.

Scientific names are not difficult; I have an article here about these you might find helpful:

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
