That's a pretty good idea too, which do you think is a better option?

Convicts would probably be cheaper and more convenient.

Convicts it is. I'm gonna pick some up after class today, I'm just hoping I can find some smaller than these Mayan's!

So I bought 4 convicts, along with 2 more mayan cichlids. I was actually surprised they had the red terrors in. I also rearranged the tank and put the lava rock closer together to create more hiding spots. I lost another red terror today though, but hopefully it all works out in the end. More pics soon!

Good to know and again don't be discouraged by the deaths. When I was looking to get a cuban cichlid pair I bought 5 and put them in a 125. They basically killed eachother down to a pair. There was one point when I only had 2 fish left and thought they would never pair but they ended up being a male and female and paired off.

For the most part, is that how it always works? Just let nature take it's course and you end up with a pair?

for the most part yes. With the more aggressive species it can be difficult because they like to kill each other off. That is why you get a lot of them.

I'm down to the last 3 Mayan cichlids lol. The one male is/was very aggressive. I just recently came across some true red terrors, and I think I'm going to sell these false red's pretty soon. I'm not going to continue this thread anymore for that reason. You can check out the new thread with the true red festae at the following link.

New Festae, Take a Lookski

Thanks for all your help rrcoolj. By the way, the convicts didn't help the aggression but as soon as I through these 2 festae in (that are a couple inches bigger than the Mayans) it neutralized the aggression. So if anyone is reading this thread and has the same problem, I would go with one or two bigger cichlids to reduce the aggression rather than smaller ones. Just make sure they're not too big!
