False Red Terror Cichlid Pictures
I decided to post some pics of my Mayan Cichlids I've had for almost two weeks now. I had a little battle with ich which I previously posted about not that long ago. They're all better now so I snapped a couple shots.
A little background info on these little guys....I had to get them special ordered from a local pet store. None of the stores where I live have been able to get them for over a year now. I bought 10 of them for my 135 gallon aquarium, I payed $6.99 each, they're about 2 to 2.5 inches now, and I was told they were Festae lol. The pet store owner was finally able to get "Red Terror Cichlids" from his breeders and gave me a call. When I asked if they were True Red's or False Red's he didn't know or understand the difference. I then explained the difference to him and he got back to me after giving his breeders a call. They told him they were Festae but I was still sceptical. After observing them when he got the order in, I told him they were Mayan Cichlids AKA False Red Terrors. I bought them anyhow because I've never seen False Red's available in my area either, which is Central California by the way. SO....with all the background info said, here's the pics. I'll be posting some more up in a day or two, and hopefully a video.
