Cool, thanks, I ordered a black and white Caribsea African Cichlid sand mix to layer on top and take it from there. I could see how this fish would survive, spread and invade without much harm to the ecosystem. It's a very oppurtinistic smart son of a gun in my aquarium and excellent swimmer both in slow and fast moving waters. I'm just happy it's not a female as it looks very agressive. It's become the semi boss of the tank and chases the Texas if it comes in her cave or territory.

That has been my experience: jewels holding their own against somewhat larger Central Americans.

I would suggest getting some with better coloration, or at least get a pair to bring out their breeding colors like below

Weird, the Green Texas is chasing the Jewel around now. I'd never get a pair again lol, unless they would be placed in their own aquarium. I had a pair terrorize a cichlid aquarium 20 years ago...never again. Yes, I wanted a Lifallili red jewel but I've never seen them in this city. Awesone fish to me, with or without much coliration. Thanks for the link.

Look like a female?
