Just wanted to share an old vid of one of my fry from my WC pair. Took this vid maybe 30 seconds after putting her in.

There's no doubt as to who was the boss in that tank.

These fish are pretty crazy. I've found out the hard way that only the "aggressive" SA/CA cichlids can hang with them. Problem is you have to get them around twice the size of the Fasciatus in order for them to live. These grow pretty quickly to 6-8" if you keep up on your water maintenance. If you get them at the same size, they'll kill them all. Spent a ton of money figuring this out the hard way.

Ouch. That sounds like a painful experience - both financially and emotionally.
