Here is an update on my as yet unnamed crypots. The 2 pans and septem hang out together and kind of exclude the nano (yellow one) from the community. Find this interesting behavior. When ever I come close to the tank, especially with the camera, the three of the cluster together and stare into the lens. The nano is usually off on his own. The septem chases the nano a bit, but otherwise they leave him alone. I think the 2 pans will turn into a pair, . . . . Not really looking for, but so be it. i am loving the colors and patterns on the larger pan. The smaller one has the same colors, but more faded. Looking forward to when they gets larger.

These are great pics! You should save the pics and put them under 'Cichlid Profiles & Information' when they get older.

I will keep an eye on him. He is an outgoing fish, but is the second to smallest (smaller pan is smallest) in the tank, so he may assert himself more as he grows. He is not afraid of me when I put my hand in the tank. Completely different kind of colors than the others. Excited for him to get bigger.

@UNC-CH -- I have been planning to do an entry on these guys soon. Just need to set aside a bit of time for it. Thanks for the encouragement!

Thanks. I go back and forth. They all have great personality. It is a toss-up between the Nano and the larger Pan I think.
