Agree on that, given the tank decorations, they like leaves and roots.

Really nice fish when they mature, I had some about 4 years ago.

It is better to use the scientific name, so everyone in the world will know exactly which fish you are considering.:-)

I just did a Google of "inca cichlid" and two very diofferent cichlids came up. The images for "inca cichlid" are about as varied as one could imagine, even including birds.:shock:

Scientific names are not difficult; I have an article here about these you might find helpful:
