I have had my juvie 1" and less saulosi in my 90 gallon tank for almost 2 full days now. They seem to be doing well, eating, exploring etc. However, it seems like they playing "follow the leader." They will take turns leading with all the other fish following...sometimes going up and down the aquarium on one side, sometimes hiding behind my pots, other times going in the rocks and finding tunnels to come out in other areas, but they are always together, almost like they were schooling. From my understanding cichlids don't really school, so why this behavior?

Mine did that too when i first got them at about the same size!

They eventually went their separate ways. I think they just stuck together because they were scared at first.
