I bought what I thought was 2 baby Pseudo Aceis today and they are fairly young but they have dark black stripes! Is this normal for a young Acei? I do realize lots of cichlids do not show full colour until they mature~my concern are those very dark black stripes. They look exactly like this pic, minus the yellow fins:
Please ignore the firebird-cichlid part in the link, it is the only picture of a fish that matched closely to mine on the internet-my camera is still not functioning.
