    Hi and welcome to the AC :)

    I think you have a couple African butterfly cichlids (Anomalochromis thomasi), not sure of the other. Beautiful fish ;)

    Hello Kat,
    Thank you for replying:) Which ones are the African Butterfly cichlids? I thought that's what my LFS said but for the life of me I can't figure out who is who and what is what lol I just want to do things right but I dont even know what they are! haha These are the first cichlids I have owned so I am totally new to this kind of fish. I have been reading a lot but I have looked at so many different kinds I have gone blank.

    The fish with the blue speckling looks like a Geophagus brasilensis type. If it is a male it can get to 10". Overall, they can be really aggressive to other cichlids. They like to have cooler water for a few months around 73F, so set your heater to around that temperature. Minimum tank size is a 75g.

    Thank you so much. I am thinking I will bring him back to my LFS. I dont mind the size but he is already aggressive to the others. I really like him but not if he will hurt the others.
