Cichlid ID Please
i went to my local LFS about 2 months ago to buy some plants but in the planted tank, i noticed some female bettas, angel fish, and these 3 tiny little fish, about the size of my pinky nail. they were being chased around by the bettas and angels. I asked what they were and they said they were some cichlids that came from "the mommas fishs mouth." so im guessing mouthbroaders? anyway, i bought them for only 10 cents each!!! i know its bad to buy them without any info on how to care for them T_T its been 2 months and they are large compared to when i bought them. they are now about 1.5 inch long, very very very active! constanly playing, chasing each other, stalking cherry shrimps (not even pecking them!)and chasing each other constanly lol. they are housed in my 10 gallon tank, heavily planted, 2 guppys, Xcherry shrimps.
i searched online for pics of all cichlids but....couldnt find anything...
heres a pic of the largest one.
