 Hello  IAH,
 
 Can  you  guys  check  and  confirm  if  the  fish  in  the  pics  below  are  indeed  Cichlasoma  salvini?
 
 I  am  about  90%  sure  of  this  ID  and  I  am  100%  sure  of  the  fact  that  the  pics  are  terrible.
 
 I  will  go  back  there  with  a  digi-cam  and  get  proper  pic.
 
 They  are  currently  2.5-3  inches  in  size.  I  am  considering  growing  them  (maybe  1  or  2)  out  in  my  15  gal  and  then  when  they  are  large  enough  not  to  be  eaten,  I  can  put  them  in  the  tank  of  monsters  (Silver  Aro,  FL  Gars  and  Jaguar)
 
 I  realize  they  are  very  very  aggressive  towards  others  of  the  same  species.  I  plan  to  keep  only  one  male.  The  others  in  the  tank  are  going  to  be  too  big  to  be  bothered  by  this  guy  even  when  comparing  adult  sizes.
 
   Cheers,
 Sid

 i  have  a  pair  of  salvini  for  the  past  2.5  years  and  trust  me  they  look  way  way  better  than  the  pic  you  posted.  usually  people  click  them  with  flash  on  and  that  kills  the  color.  if  you  see  them  in  good  lit  tank  you'll  be  floored  by  their  colors.

 It  will  be  awesome  if  you  can  post  some  pictures  of  your  Salvinis.

 <offtopic>  The  shop  was  closed  by  the  time  I  got  there  (Kurla  wholesale  market)...  And  there  was  some  big  commotion  about  one  store  losing  a  whole  shipment  of  fish  (~10,000  pieces,  several  of  those  blue  drums)  as  some  the  guy  sending  them  across  forgot  to  add  some  medicine/chemical  to  the  tank.  
 
 What  do  these  people  add  to  these  un-aerated  plastic  drums  to  keep  the  fish  alive  though  transport?  (I  am  guessing  some  tranquilizer  to  lower  the  metabolism  (and  hence  the  breathing)  of  the  fish.)

 This  was  one  my  juveniles,  initially  thought  they  were  hormone  fed  for  their  colors.  They  kept  it  throughout  their  adult  lives  too.

 I  had  seen  a  product  increasing  oxygen  levels  in  the  water,  used  in  Prawn  farming.  There  was  a  whole  sackful  of  the  powder  on  sale,  supposed  to  be  use  for  stagnant  ponds  where  prawns  are  cultured  from  fingerlings.  
   Would  have  loved  to  take  a  small  quantity  to  try  out  in  aquariums.
