Hi all, I absolutely love hornet cichlids (despite all the aggression) and was just wondering at what size, on avg, do the males display the darker coloration?...I've kept cichlids for quite some time now so I've got plenty of experience and I decided to try hornets and after some time i found them to be my favorite of all the malawi species, I'm looking to breed so thats the basis for the question. :thumb:

I have huge male, and he only shows the "male" colouration sporadically. You will likely only see the darker colouration as your fish mature and they begin to exert/demonstrate their dominance.
