I know which ones are the red points, an which are the 2 convict females. I needed to move the convict females because they were harassing the firemouths I have.  The fry if they have any will be fed to kegger's Champs.  I have an awesome male convict at my dad's house that I will eventually bring back to my fishroom for my female convicts.

Hope that was a joke. Don't cross the red points, it is tough to find true ones now days. Nuth, paper sent.

Old news, but need to put something in this new section ;). The Schmitter-Soto paper from last summer reclassified many Central American Cichlids. Some points of the paper:


1. Convict Cichlids have been broken up into 4 species and placed in a new genus, Amatitlania
2. Herotilapia multispinosum (Rainbow Cichlids) are now members of Archocentrus
3. 2 new species of the genus Cryptoheros
4. Neetroplus nematopus has been placed in the genus Hypsophrrys, the genus of H. nicaraguense (The Macaw Cichlid)
5. Jack Dempseys have been placed in a new genus (Rocio) and have been split into three species.

And yes, there is more.

If interested, shoot me an e-mail or pm. I will send you the paper.
