i couldn't help myself my tank was just looking too empty for my liking so i put up a divider and got myself a beautiful male Red Terror :woohoo: (i shouldn't really call him that but it helps people know what it is) . hes still pretty small maybe 4 or 5 inches long i took a picture of him hes still a bit stressed out from the move and my dovii x mota started picking on him before i got the divider up.

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.

No bad, w/ their temper it's a common error(one which I made). Mine are TINY, & they def don't grow as fast as other cichlids I've had, but they are freakin' cool, man. Good luck w/ him!!

i should have done my research before i bought him.... for some reason i always thought they were just like mayan cichlids just prettier turns out that isn't the case at all infact they are hardly related at all. i suppose we learn something new everyday.
