Thanks Dave! they're hard to find around here unless you want to buy sub adults or adults and then they are very $$$$$. It's a fish I've wanted for a long time.
I got the 3 of them for $20 at a fish show on Sunday. I couldn't turn that down. :lol:

I have an empty 55 right now and I def want to grow a female in it. Got a new xp3 coming in, so I'll run that for a few months on another tank, then see what I can find. Looked at a lot of pics of female Festae, just gorgeous. Very slow growers according to Rock, he has a couple, so I think a little lady will do fine in a 55 for a couple years.

Both males and females won't outgrow a 55g in less than 18 months. Female would be fine in a 55g for life, unless she gets to about 12".

Nice pickup DB,

Wish I could catch wind of an "Aquamania" type event. We have lots of reptile shows locally, but as far as I know no fish shows or clubs. They already look great, much better than the two I got recently. I think I may actually have Mayan, or hybrid fish.

Thanks Rob! The local fish club started Aquamania a couple of years ago, this was my 1st time I'll be going to them all now. Jeff Rapps from tangled up in cichlids goes to this show and you can pre-order your stock and save a mint on shipping.

Once again, great looking fish. I did not even question the identity of mine until you posted your pics. I am a little jealous at the moment, but I will get over it. I can't wait to see yours grow out.

Awesome!
