    Hey you guys what do you know about the banded jewel cichlid
    i have one that i keep with all the big south american cichlids in the house
    he was a bit of a bully to growing south americans around the same size but now he's around huge cichlids and the only thing in there his size is one of the pikes, now he seems to blend right in.

    There is a lot of very nice fish that isn't popular. The reasons for this can be many, people don't know about them, they are to aggressive etc.
