Personal notes:  I bought twenty very young Enterochromis paropius at the Ohio Cichlid Association Extravaganza in the fall of 2014.  They are supposed to be a fairly peaceful species and thus far that has proven to be true.

Above are two of the adults I have in a single species 30 gallon tank

Young 2 inch (5 cm) males above haven't reached their full color potential yet
