So I have confirmation that my largest festae is a girl. I bought her at 1" in late May, so I'm assuming she hatched around the April 2012 time frame. So 10 months later and at 4.5"-5", she does this:



The would be father is the 6-7" jag if the eggs are fertilized. I've seen quite a few go white in the last 36 hours.

Very nice.. are they also known as Red Terrors, or is that something different?


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

There are two fish known as red terrors: Cichlasoma Festae and Cichlasoma urophthalmus. Festae are from South America and Uros are from Mexico. Uros also go by the name of Mayan Cichlid.

Cichlasoma urophthalmus

Uropthalmus are known as False Red Terrors; people confuse Festae & Urops all the time, but they look like 2 completely different fish to me.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

She's stunning...

But if those are half jag, half festae, and they hatch, you'd be raising a bunch of serial killers!

Nice one, that is a gorgeous looking fish, lovely colour.

A Jastae will be an interesting fish, are you going to let them hatch & raise them?
