Cichilds become pets vs. just fish swimming around in a glass box. You going to enjoy owning them.

they really do, like I said I just hope I can keep the water quality good enough for them. may eventually get like 2 more and get like a Marlboro red or something. even my wife is loving them, though when they are hungry I am afraid to get near the tank! lol

If I may offer a suggestion. Keep all one strain. We you eventually get a pair, and you will, a pair of the same strain is more valuable should you decide to sell them.

FYI, if you had lighter colored substrate, the colors of your fish would immediately lighten and intensify. Here's one of my turqs for comparison.
