    Very new here and just wanted to ask a few things to beef up my cichlas. Been giving them chicken heart and shrimps since day 1. Just wanted to ask a few other options to maximize their growth and enhance their colors? Attached their pictures 😁

    My Little Punk Rockers

    So far my Pinima are growing out and fattening up nicely. When I first got them I got so worried thinking their fins were all nipped up. But I realized after a minute Pinima just have some intense little mohawks. Naturally, I named my guys Sonic and Punk. Glad to see they’re maintaining that...
