Acarichthys heckelii

Heckel’s Thread-Finned Acara is one of the most sought after of all the cichlids. It boasts a beautiful silver body, shades of green and blue, as well as an elongated spine. These fish require a roomy well-planted tank of 40 gallons or larger. They enjoy digging though the aquarium sand for food, therefor use sand or fine gravel in the tank. These fish enjoy a diet of flakes, pellets, daphnia, tubifex, and other freeze-dried foods, such as shrimp, bloodworms, or mosquito larvae.  Other competitors offer this fish for $50 each! Our farm will ship you awesome healthy Heckelii for a fraction of the price!
