  1. Hi goldenswimmers i have taken pics of my 2 argentea and hoping you might be able to tell from the pics
  2. I have 2 vieja argentea cichlids one is definitely female and the other was sold to me as male however I have photographed both vents and I'm sure its male female however I'm no expert and just wondering if anyone else has better experience on this topic
  3. Have a vieja argentea around 17cm hoping someone with a bit of experience with these can tell what they think ive done all the usual searching on google etc but always nice to get someones actual opinion who might have had them and seen first hand some characteristics (last pic when i first got him) only asking as i want to start looking for a mate for him or her...
  4. Wokw up this morning to see the new favourite the argentea has his fins stripped and a good chunk missing, after watching them yesterday and this morning the argentea can't hold his own against the smaller FM and doesn't seem to want to retaliate to his annoying behaviour the FM seems to rule until the salvini comes out of his cave then he follows him around like a little puppy dog I was thinking it was the salvini doing the damage but I have only seen the FM nip at him so I'm not too sure now really thought the argentea would've been boss of the whole situation being the biggest fish in the tank but doesn't appear to have worked out in his favour thinking of adding some dithers today and seeing how it goes does anyone have any ideas
