    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if anybody can tell me what type of cichlid this is?
    I've asked before but he was rather small and my photo was quite poor.
    Now he's bigger (and I have a slightly better camera :D )
    I thought I'd ask again.

    Many thanks
    DB

    I have a jd, got it when it was a little one and it is 5 years old now, does anyone know how many years they can live up to? Mine seems quite shy, i think it's a female from a site i looked up way back, how you can tell the difference,but she is the only one i have in the tank besides a bottom feeder and algea eaters, so I'm not sure what she would do if i put another fish in there, she would probably get very wild.I bought this cichild gold food and it's suppose to really bring out there colors, which it does, she looks really pretty., it's made by Hikari.Oh when i'm at my desk i always feeling like somethings watching me,lol and i look over at the tank and there she is watching me. :) Nice to be here I'm new here.

    most cichlid's life spans are around 10-15 years with a few exceptions of corse..
