I am new to keeping Cichlids and very happy to find a place to get guidance. I have a male Peacock Cichlid and up until a couple of months ago a female Peacock Cichlid. She died unexpectedly. Apparently they managed to breed and we never saw any sign of fry until yesterday. I was cleaning the tank and discovered a small (~1" long) cichlid that shouldn't be in the big fish tank. I managed to catch it and put it in the tank with our tetras until it can grow up a bit. My problem will be if it is a male because my other tank will not support a second male cichlid. How old are Cichlids before they start showing enough color to be able to tell if its male or female. If it is female, how big should it be before I put it into the tank with the adult cichlid?
