there chichlids, which means they could be the nicest fish in the world, or the most destuctive. but dont worry im sure they'll be fine in a community tank, thats what im doing.

Bolivians are very peaceful. The only problems you might run into is aggressiveness between themselves. They won't bother any other fish.

Even though it is the same planet, underwater is a whole different world.

i think (notice the think since im not sure) females have a pinker belly and they their dorsal fin is smooth at the end. But i dont think you can tell unless they are older and close to mating

It's GBR's that have pink bellies. For Bolivians, it's near impossible to tell until they mature. Females will stay a little smaller, and won't have the long extensions on their dorsal fin and tail fin.
