cryptoheros sajica or T bar cichlid
origin central america
temp 26degrees
size males reach about 5 inches and females about 3.5 inches

dont go by the size of these cichlids.they have every bit the nasty reputation as their larger central american couterparts.The male develops a hump and the female turns almost a dark black with golden fins while breeding.make sure to provide plenty of caves and escape routes for the female while breeding as the males get overly aggressive.

Amatitlania nigrofasciata(convict cichlid)
Image[/URL]
Origin :Central America
Size: upto 4''
Diet:Omnivore
Water parameters:6.0–8.0 pH,20-28 °C

Personal view : are very aggressive ,one of the easiest fish to breed one should not keep pair in community tank otherwise tank will become war zone :dua , like to dig will be busy most of the time doing this,my mom named this fish as "majdoor machali" (worker) :D , this fish is full of character.
