Ok, have to say Cichlids are awesome lol
 
Ok, so I just love my new fish friends lol

These fish are so amazing and fun to sit and look at...my bumblebee changes colors right before my eyes..he will be very bright and than almost go pitch black " he's only done this twice that I have seen" but very cool to see.
And my red cichlid has been moving rocks ALL day....what a worker he is...and the big rocks he get's behind them and pushes those as well..it's amazing to see...this red one " really color orange lol " also acts crazy...he will go up down....up down....up down...across the tank do twirls and wirls...I've never seen anything like it really.

My convicts always totally redecorated their tank every few days. After a gravel vacuum we'd just put all the decorations back in wherever and they'd have it all moved around how they'd like it in a few hours.

One of the big males even took to spitting gravel at the glass in order to get our attention when he wanted to play.

Yes, it certainly does.. these fish are very smart and mine LOVE having their picture taken haha When I go to the tank with my camera they come and look and stay still..it's funny.

Hah, my Severum I used to have (RIP Buddy) would do the same thing. he would spit gravel at the glass and then when I would walk over to look at him he would wiggle at me and beg for food. He had a great personality.
