    Nice Mike. I got 3 from snookn myself about 2 months ago. Mine are 3 to 4inches now and they were tiny when they came in. I need to try the tilapia thing.

    sweet..i'll def take a vid tonight..

    :D

    2 out of my 4 ate tilapia and one ate tiny pieces of carnivore pellets..IMO when getting baby cichla esp if trying to avoid feeding live food start them out of frozen shrimp or tilapia..as they adjust quicker..but then thats just my opinion..would love to see pics of your little guys..even though they are a bit bigger then mine would love to see how ours turn out ..
