Unfortunately we can't post links to other sites and forums here at TFK. My first thought tho is that it has something to do with color, some change as they mature. Some species the males are more colorful. Also the number of spots on the anal fin depending on the species. There are several Cichlid keepers here at TFK and hopefully they can add some input.

what cichlids are we talking about? There are literally hundreds of different types so we need more specifics.

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!)
