aaaannddd.. They are by FAR not the most colorful cichlids around. I can look all around my house and take pics to prove that
. and my BFs place as well.
I didnt say THE most colourful cichlids around, but I've seen some that were certainly up there with the best. Their coloration can rival that of the most colourful africans. Oh, and I'd love to see those pics ;). And I have personally seen a 7-8 inch male pink convict (no it was NOT a midas) at my lfs. And despite their usually larger size, fire mouths are wusses compared to convicts. I keep mine quite successfully with head and tail light tetras and cory cats. Cheers, Jim
