    They are pricey.. :/
    But, those colors--- they are outrageous!
    I looked them up to determine care and this was consistent--- but, the length they get when full grown is all over the place!
    The most consensus I can gather from what little is online ( they are quite rare) about them is they grow to just under 4 inches with much sexual dimorphism between the males and females. The males markedly larger.
    On another forum I am on, a member says he has raised them, ( he is primarily interested and raises/breeds African freshwater species) but they were very fragile and didn't live long under his water changing regime. They require at least a weekly 50-75% water change like clock-work or succumb to bacterial infections.

    TWS has 12 of them presently...$25 each (!)

    I agree, the coloring on the males is spectacular

    You's be the only one here (that I know of) who keeps them.

    You're pretty close to TWS, shipping cost shouldn't be too much, like I pay.

    Did that help the debate any, lol

    It sure did!
    I wonder how well they would do in the geophagus tank- the 180 gallon?
    I do plan to do 50-75% water changes weekly.
    But, I would first put them in my 30 gallon for a short while until my cycle gets more established. Maybe 2 months.

    Never kept cichlids, so I really don't know....but 180G would be plenty of room for them

    Tetras are my favorite fish, as well. ...I do keep "a few" of them
