I got excited that my local fish store called me saying they are getting in some nice colored Rubesen Cichlids. I told them I am only interested if they are red. Rep told me oh yeah, this are nice color Rubesens. I was like sweet! Finally! I got there right when they open, FAIL!! Orange... I am willing to pay up to $150 for one of those bad boys!
So I caved in an bought a Rubescens Peacock, although its not the red that I saw on you tube. But I got a deal on a male and a female $59 bucks for the pair! The male is about 3 inches long showing great color (redish orange). Found out the female was pregos and was carrying babies in its mouth! As soon as I put it in my hospital tank, she started spitting them out! Sweet! Breeding time!
