they are aggressive towards other fish but quite peaceful with each other. i had 2 convicts and the male wouldn't leave them alone, so i got rid of them.

Hi From the both pictures posted by Allen even the term cf is not appropriate, cf means that the both fish are very close. This is not the case here(because of the body coloration being too far from the original lutea) we are dealing with two differentiated species as every one can see on pics. The body color is as of the same importance for the diagnose of a species as the teeth or the melanin pattern .
xris :)
Don't forget that Ole Seehausen didn't see this H.spot bar Yala swamp as a Mbipia lutea.
