There are so many beauties in this thread, but I wish people would label their pics with the name of the fish.
Obviously, some do, but quite a few don't.
As a newcomer to cichlids I am trying to learn what they look like. A label is essential for the idiots like myself !!
Just my opinion, obviously.

1- “sunshine” peacock
2- “tangerine tiger”
3- “deep water hap”
4- “red top Lwanda”
5- “blue dolphin” hap
6- “yellow blaze” lithobates
I listed the common names instead of scientific names so it’s easier to find in most local fish stores.

This ole gal has been with us for quite a few years. She is almost 6" in length.You can see one of the darker females behind her. These have been with out a doubt the best fish we've kept.
