I've had this guy around 8 months now. I got him from Petsmart at about half an inch. He's about 6 inches and he's been with my oscars for about a week. He is now alone in his own 75 gallon tank and he's going to stay that way for life! He was a terror even for my 9 inch oscars (Fred and Molly) to deal with. Anyway, I was liking his colors today so I figured I'd share. Ignore that only one light is on in his tank, I have a cousin who's an electrician that is currently getting the other one fixed up :)

Nice looking fish. I remember I tried keeping a Texas Cichlid with my oscar back when I was a teen. They got on for awhile, but eventually he was on his own too.

Now just add a little Red devil into those texas cichlid genes! He can be a nightmare. I kept him with a convict cichlid for a while that worked out because the con was so tough and small enough to hide all sorts of places in the tank. The Con now lives alone in a 10 gallon. I'm either going to buy him something a little larger or bring him to my LFS if I can't make the room for it. I just haven't quite decided yet!

Looks nice, but I bet the attitude is going to only get worse too. Lol

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.
