I am in between a Female Festae or a Midas for my standard 4' 90 gallon. If you vote could you leave a message on why you voted the way you did.

Both have their pros and cons but i was curious of others opinions.
These are what I look at: 1.Personality 2. Color 3.Possible Tankmates.

And if you have pics of your own feel free to post.

Thanks!!! :thumb:

Midas, because I'm biased and they're my favorite ;) Awesome personalities, very interactive, and very much a monster, something I look for, lol. No tankmates if you go that route though.

Male Midas definitely for me, IMO Midas are one of the top 5 favorite cichlids out there. and IMHO a Male midas with a nice large hump is more impressive then a female festae.

IMO you could have problems with finding tankmates for either. I really like my female RD and sometime down the road when I can get another large tank would love a large male Midas. The ones I have known were very interactive, and look great.

Wowsers. Thanks for the replies guys. We are tied right now. I was watching some youtube videos last night and the Midas has so much more personality. Right now Im leaning towards Midas.

I broke the tie. I vote for a big male Midas too. They are big babies. I have several tanks in the same room. When my Midas sees me giving attention to the other fish he gets so jealous. He swims up and down splashing water until I come and pet his hump. My GT watches me pet my Midas, maybe he will get to be that tame too. Anyway, if all else fails you could a Midas and a Festae :lol: Good luck with what ever you get they are both awesome fish.

I think I might be crazy, cause I seem to be the only one that finds those nuchal humps fugly!!! :lol:

Probably why I prefer pikes and eartheaters over midas and frontosas. :p

I have a poll on another forum, while this forum is still tied 6-6. the other forum is 16-12, Festae in the lead. This is gonna be a hard decision in the end, i can tell already.

Interesting how some fish are popular in some places and not others. I wish my area was like yours though... I'd really like to see a festae in one of my lfs's every now and then.
