No, not Oscars. I'm not sure but maybe a Jack Dempsey on the first one and Red Devil on the second pic?

comando489 03-08-2008 06:33 PM

i was thinking black belt for the first one. and i have no clue about the second one.

Pleco_stomus 03-08-2008 06:43 PM

the first pic isnt a dempsey, the color looks off.

the second i'd venture to say might be a red devil with some sort of scale problem.

im going to call the first one a texas cichlid, heres a pic i found tell me if thats it,
still quite unsure about the second, i saw a pic of a blue acara that looked like that only im not sure the guy was even talking about a blue acara (since its red, duh).
