    or also called the yellow-bellow cichlid among other common names. I went to my LFS (the one I trust) and was actually looking for a cichlid or two to put in my tank, depending on their size. There was a tank of these salvini cichlids, but I had never seen or heard of them before. I asked the owner, and basically he said they get to be about 6 inches, may be agressive to their own kind, territorial (just like most cichlids). He said this cichlid requires a pH of about 7.0 to 7.5 (mine being 7.0) and my setup of caves and hiding places would be ideal. I normally don't buy a fish before researching it myself, but I trusted the guy's opinion. He did warn me about my guppies, though. He's too small to eat them, but I have already seen some tail nipping, so I'll probably need to remove them soon, like today or tomorrow. Other tankmates are so far so good, though.

    SALVINI!!!! :)





    Anyone have any experience with these beautiful cichlids?

    Can you imagine how beautiful he'll be once he's full grown?! I'm sure my camera will get used quite often on this guy.

    The color patterns remind me of the peacock bass.

    Emergency removal of the guppies!! I had turned out the light about an hour ago, but I could see my guppies swimming all crazy around (their color is easy to see from across the room) and sure enough!! The salvini is hunting them!

    I didn't think he would be that aggressive, but I guess live and learn.
