    What is a Rainbow King?

    I heard people mention "Rainbow Kings" before I understand that they are a hybrid and I think they have a lot of vieja in them but I don't know anything else. Does anyone know anything about them?

    Juvenile Black Belt (Maculicauda) coloration

    So I was at my local shop yesterday and I saw a tank of what looks like really washed out Viejas. I thought they were some sort of mutts so I asked the guy to show me the list and it said paraneetroplus maculicauda. They were super drab I'd almost say pure white, there were a few that had a few...

    Fry dying - killing each other or disease?

    Hey everyone, My Vieja Guttulatus and Vieja Hartwegi recently started to breed after they hit about two years old. One batch of fry is about two and a half months old now, and I've been finding dead ones each morning. Sometimes I will find two or three, and sometimes I will wake up to ten dead...

    Species and Sex Vieja..

    Hey guys been a long time reader but just signed up. Reading a lot about sexing the Vieja. Seems like the fish are making and clearing areas to lay eggs but both seem Male. There's a lot of discussion between correct species between vieja as well and would just like to clear some questions up.

    Vieja cichlid needs ID

    Recently, I got this cichlid on a small lure. I guess it belongs to the genus Vieja. Does anyone know the exact species? Thanks

    Need ID for a Vieja cichlid

    Hi, I need help in identifying this cichlid in the attachment images. I got it in one of the rivers in Singapore. I guess it was introduced here. My guess would be some species from the genus Vieja but I would like a confirmation. Thank you

    Should C.Panamensis be reclassified to vieja?

    Cryptoheros Panamensis is an interesting and nice looking cichlid. My 'issue' with it is that it's in cryptoheros... A lot of the cryptoheros species were recently reclassified into amatitlania, and I'm not sure if panamensis was too, but either way I think it doesn't belong. It's a smaller...
