Head over to monsterfishkeepers.com if you guys want to see large predatory fish. You won't get a decent education on them over here, but you'd be surprised what kind of apex predators will live happily with cichlids.

I love that site. Great fish. Didn't understand what they were asking but makes sense now. Im used to seeing Huge fish and cichlids mixed. Guess others arn't.


Anyways.

You might want to quit posting these shots then - I've already started looking for a high grade manaconda ;)

Also, with the exception of the managuense/texas hybrid - all of these are quite obviously mutts.

LOL this is back firing on you. I'd grab a manaconda or jagexas in a second if I saw one. I don't have a problem with hybrids as long as they are sold as hybrids.

Oh I know. but at least the end results are satisfying some peoples curiousity. I know I would have wanted some of theses hybrids. but I didn't know what they look like. Now I do. so its over. :D

That one is a cross. I was reading the topic and the guy show spawning pictures and everything. but there are 100% pure convicts who are naturally blue like that. As the TFG will shw you in a topic about the blue convict in this forum atm.
