Went to pet store to get spirulina pellets refilled (they refill their containers for 1/2 price). Someone had torn down their tank and got rid of their fish. As usual the pet store didn't even know the name of the cichlids they had.

One of the employees knew me so she said ask her, that is the cichlid lady. So I name off the cichlids, a large Synodontis cat and then there they were two large clowns. One 4 1/2", one 6" (2 1/2" deep-a real big boy for this area). They were fat but didn't look the best. No frayed fins but color wasn't good, they have like white rub spots in their black stripes and they also have the black dots (look like pimples but not raised) that Mickie talked about.
