I can't see any large cichlids in there, but that dracanae will rot at some stage if it isn't plastic. ;)

Guy pulled a no-show on me, had the fish bagged waiting for an hour, livid.

I'm just going to keep them now. Can't be bothered with the hassle. They generally keep out of each other's way anyway, at least if nothing else I won't get any breeding aggression.

You have a definite pair, the one on the right being female. An unmistakeable difference is the shape of the chin- males have a concave, receding chin, females have a convex chin. I first read of this on several cichlid forums which clearly show close-up pics of the chin shapes.

Hi @Redpanda !

I tried to jumble them up in a group a bit to see if I could maybe get a pair, these 2 appear to be tolerating each other, they're so fun to watch, like to sit front-centre of the tank and always looking to get fed when I walk in the room.
