So ive had these guys in quarantine for a while now, and just added them to the 220. 3 sp. Venezuela "i think". They randomly got them in with some other fish, and i was in the right place at the right time. My question is when do females develop the white or black line across the top of the dorsal? With this species? 20180804_232133.jpg 20180804_232127.jpg 20180804_232116.jpg 20180804_232114.jpg

Yeah petco isnt that weird. They got them in on accident is what they said. So this species doesnt get the stripe across the dorsal that most crenicichla get?

Nice catch! Get some tank mates for them. They mix well with other deep bodied SA cichlids.

I was at Petco, one time, and amongst the feeder goldfish was a lone tiny bluegill(?).
