    I have a few questions for ya.

    South American, right?

    Closely related to the jaguar cichlid?

    Do they have a "common name" since you have a penchant for the "difficult to pronounce"?

    South American.....nope.

    Looks like a jag huh........

    Common name yes it does have one but then google would make you the winner so I can't tell ya......

    Sieve cichlids? Please don't tell me their jag's. I will literally smack myself if they are.

    No but grammodes would be fun to do wouldn't they?

    And no not Jag's, don't tell anyone but I don't like them.....

    :giggle:

    Are they Cuban cichlids? If not, are they Guapotes?

    BTW-as I'm looking for these, I'm getting myself into ALL KINDS of trouble finding more cichlids that I want for these empty tanks. I'm going to need some more double-stacking stands:)

    Very good yes they are Cubans, Nandopsis Tetracanthus.
