    Pretty much no agression, everyone knows there place and just fit in. The red head lays all the time and takes over the tank but nothing bad

    Selling the female synspillim(red head) in the last picture before the Texas cichlids. Looking for R400 for her she is around 25cm and very healthy, not an aggressive fish. Also an egg layer been laying about every 3 weeks.

    If decided to only sell the red head if you keen? Texas is an crazy fish I won't lie but due to being small relative to the rest he does not make any hassles in my tank bu would destroy other fish his size at 20cm

    I don't have pics now I'm not near my tank. I'm looking for 400. Must be close to 25 cm. has an attitude but not bad at all. Just will not let another fish mess with her. She lays often if ou have a male you want to hybridize with. What size tank do you have and fish?
