Hello members, just wanted to share some pics of my female Vieja Synspilum or Firehead Cichlid and my female Cichlasoma Maculicuada or Blackbelt Cichlid. Do enjoy!



Here she is digging and showing off towards "Champ" my faded Fortune Fish(flowerhorn) from Rarefish (A taiwanese FF farmer/breeder). The two have quite a nac for each other.


And here's my Vieja Syn coloring up really nicely since being moved in with my pearl Fortune Fish from Rarefish.


And here's a full body shot of her again!


Marc

Why thank you, I like to think that they are both nice females. The blackbelt has actually colored up really nice since this photo was taken. I will update soon once I can site down and take some more shots of them.

Marc Very Happy

Nice fish and shots, but why are you classing the black belt as cichlasoma? its a true veija

Here's your answer as to the differences in name use,
http://www.fishbase.org.ph/webservice/Occurrence/PointData.asp?Genus=Vieja&Species=maculicauda

Over the years certain people have changed their classification but I always keep with the original inpretation. From Regan to Theraps in and thus has stayed at Cichlasoma since 1986. Does that better answer your question, and yes I know that it is classified under Vieja species or is that Theraps? Which one sounds better let me guess.

See when i read that i see Name used in collection, meaning the person that found it called it Cichlasoma maculicauda, which would be classed as a synonym, but its true species name is Veija
