The Chocolate cichlid is named for its chocolate color.  They are native to Brazil.  One of their characteristics is their ability to change color, ranging from a reddish color to almost purple, almost instantly.  When this photo was taken, this fish turned from a chocolate color to a reddish brown.  Choccic.jpg

The Jewel Fish is also a member of the Cichlid Family.  It is a very aggressive, almost savage fish.  In the tank with it was a Oscar, which outweighed it by 1.5 lbs., so it did not bother the Oscar, and remarcably, the Oscar did not bother the Jewel Fish.
