Personal notes: I purchased 12 Pundamilia sp. "red head" at the Ohio Cichlid Extravaganza in November of 2013. Ten have made it to adulthod. My 3M:7F is a nice mix that breeds often but hides far too much. I have them in a single species 40 gallon tank. The males are full grown and have a somewhat bulky body shape. All three male show some red although the dominant male show the most and the brightest red.
