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.

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:
