So my larger Nicaragua Cichlid last night, and only last night was showing different behavior than i am used to seeing!
He would twitch a couple times and then puff up and show aggression against a fish in the tank, I have done some reading and people say this could easily be the Nicaragua trying to impress the ladies. Is that bogus? or is there something else that it might be? He hasn't done it ever before, and hasn't done it (from what i've seen) today either.

Im not to sure, I've been looking into it and i believe my convict is a male, but one of my green terrors may be female.. not 100% sure yet, but im thinking so.

I've heard that Female green terrors will have shorter fins.. or tail or something like that, and this one does have a shorter compared to the others.



Heres the other green terror


And then the convict.



And finally the Nicaragua.

How long is this Nic? It looks female due to the long stripe. More likely stressed too because of the dark vertical bars.

The con looks female due the blues and orange.

Agree with the GT assessment.
