Just for all you interested people out there. I kind of want to make a topic that shows all the crosses of species of cichlids. That way people don't try it. OR if your Very very unlucky and these fish just breed like this on you, Which is way more likely lol. SO hopefully this will be a Deterrent just incase people wish to keep the fry. Tho it might cause people to try it. I got another 50 or so pictures of various hybrids.

Cause this video shows a Convict cichlid breed with a Midas. Cant tell the difference, its scary not knowing what your fish can be.

So post your pictures of Central/south American hybrids and tell what species they are. Just so the curious people don't try and breed them and end up being stuck with 1-300 fry and circulate them into the main population,


This is Texas/Red devil.
Scary. Actually I'm starting to like the way it looks.

Your not making a GREAT point. But it is nice to see what they would look like to satisfy my curiosity. Just removed some fish from my "mad scientist: should try." list.

It makes me think of dog crosses. Some mutts can look pretty good but I've never seen a cross with a basset hound that looked very good.

Anyway, I wouldn't breed mutts and I wouldn't breed hybrid fish. Still, I wouldn't mind owning either.
