Whats their competition? or are they Stand alones (Tank of Lyonsi only)? I have the h.pano, the Freddies and the BB from hades in my tank....

Wow!!  Maybe its their diet, but the caudal, a.nal, and dorsal fins of the lyonsi is now bright red in appearance.  I have seen pics on the 'net of this fish, but nothing with a red as vibrant as this.  Here are some crappy pics:






Look at the fins of the fish in the lower right corner.  Red like fire engine!

Pretty fish. They are beautiful in the wild.

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

Have 7 of these guys and I have not been giving them any respect, usually having tankmates a little more aggressive and preventing them from getting comfortable and interacting.  They finally now have their own 6 foot tank and are starting to color up quite nicely.  My largest is maybe 6 inches, they share similar coloring as that of trimacs - nice yellow base, bright red eyes, pinkish belly, reddening of the tail.  This one looks to be a male.  They bar up when stressed - you can see a smaller barred one toward the bottom of the pic:
