rhoms have red bellies.

Itll dissapear with maturity and size though.

Maybe thier still youngins. 6 inches under is where i usually see rhoms with some red on them.

EDIT: Not as much red belly more in the lines of red throat.

Depending on the location that they are native to, some S. rhombeus specimens do have red throats as rocker pointed out. If you are interested in the fish, post pictures of them here though. They could be just S. sanchezi.

I agree with Taylor, it sounds more like a sanchezi to me since it is around 7".

Yeah, a 7" Sanch would be a large one. Perhaps a full grown to be that size. Of course, to make a proper ID we would have to see a pic.

Yes, 7" S. sanchezis are not very common, but I do own one, so it's definitely not impossible.

He is an aggressive finger chaser. He's beautiful too, at least I think so. You can click the link in my signature to see pictures of him.

Now back on topic....
