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.
