Old member returning~

Hi guys. My name is Mia, and I'm not really NEW, but my old username was BettasForever. I can't seem to get on that account, but anywhoo, I want to greet all the new members that are hereon my NEW account, perhaps I will see some members that I can remember Anyways, I've recently set up my 5 gallon that has been home to guppies and bettas, but this is my first time with cichlids! The orange one is named Squirt. His attitude is more like, "Wasaaap. I'm Squirt, yo." and the yellow and more outgoing one is named Bubbles. I named him this because of his bubbly attitude. He seems to kind of bully Squirt, but maybe it's just new roomate syndrome Hopefully they will all get along.

{Squirt LOVES the camera while Bubble is kind of a yellow blur. I apologize if you can't see them too well }

This is what my 5gal looks like:

This is Squirt:

{He's quite handsome, isn't he? }

And this is Bubbles:

{Such a shame I couldn't get a better picture of him, he's a gorgeous neon yellow color.}

Thanks for looking, hope to see you guys around more!

They will cross breed (if male and female) and absolutely need a bigger tank - 55g+

You have Labidochromis caeruleus (yellow labs) and Metriclima estherae (Red Zebra).

They also need to be kept in 1 male to 4 female ratios otherwise they will not be happy and prone to being aggressive.
