Anyone aware of any primarily GREEN colored african cichlids that I could add to my all male Peacock / Hap. tank?

I looked at that one (green face saulosi) but it doesn't really look green...



looks more blue and yellow.. which I have in my tank already.

Any other options?

Tramitichromis sp. "Intermedius"
That looks better, I'll have to see if I can find one to look at in person...

Anything else?

The green face lethrinops looks nice.. but might get too big for my tank....

Thanks guys.. I'll keep looking but I think you may be right.. there just aren't many...

Most Lethrinops don't get much bigger than peacocks and the smaller to medium-sized Haps. There's very little known about them though so getting consistent information can be difficult.

For the most part though, if you want a nice green, Lethrinops is the way to go.

I asked about the color of the Tramit once...wanted assurances it was really green or colored versus silver. The answer was it is a really nice teal at certain angles and silver at others. Sort of irridescent so not always the teal color.

I've looked and not found anything with much green.

I would say the Ruby Greens are your best bet...I have had my group for 4 years and are housed with a wild group of Pseu. Demasoni. My dominant Ruby is 90% in color all the time. They are in a 90 and kinda have a line in the sand that neither cross, and both stay great looking.
