These fish are known by many different names, however, we call them the Eureka Cichlid. They are about six inches long and have magnificent colors, especially when given foods that enhance their coloring.
The females have enlarged mouths when they are brooding (carrying eggs in their mouth). The female will protect a batch of 4-25 fry in her mouth for up to four weeks.
The Eureka Cichlids are relatively non-aggressive. They have a blast hiding in stone formations and enjoy environments with different territories and natural boundaries.
Aquarium requirements for the Eureka Cichlid are:
- pH: 7.5-8.0
- Temp: 75-78° F
- Food: New Life Spectrum Ultra Red (When they are beginning maturity)
