Quetzal Cichlid - Vieja synspila


Quetzal Cichlid – Vieja synspila


$11.99


Formerly referred to as Amphilophus synspilum ; this is a very large and somewhat aggressive cichlid for the home aquarium. Males develop deep red coloration on their face and gill region; as well as a large hump on their foreheads. Females are slightly more delicate in build; and have golden brown; black speckled bodies with varying amounts of red patching. Vieja cichlids are some of the more aggressive Central American cichlids. They grow large – especially adult males – and need a large aquarium with plenty of room and territory. The aquarium also needs ample filtration to handle the waste produced by the large fish. These fish are omnivores and should be fed a varied diet of meaty foods with some plant matter – appropriately-sized pellets (or flakes for small juveniles) can be supplemented with frozen and fresh foods on occassion.

Pearlscale Cichlid - Herichthys carpintis - Juvenile


Pearlscale Cichlid – Herichthys carpintis – Juvenile


$9.99


Often confused with the Texas Cichlid (Herichthys cyanoguttatus ) ;  the Pearlscale Cichlid ( Herichthys carpintis ) has speckles that are smaller and appear more green; rather than blue like the Texas Cichlid. However; the Pearlscale shares a similar temperament. These fish are fine with other Central American cichlids; but they will not tolerate other Pearlscale or Texas cichlids. A large tank with ample swimming room and rocks for hiding is ideal. As for diet; this fish is actually an herbivore; so a good veggie flake; along with the occasional fresh vegetable matter will be a great diet. Every so often; some frozen meaty food would be ok; but not on a regular basis. This fish may develop a nuchal hump on its head as they mature.

$11.99

Dwarf Pike Cichlid – Crenicichla notophthalmus


$24.99

Many of the 100+ species top out around 6-8 inches in length but all share a common behavior; diet and care. Pike cichlids are fairly peaceful towards other fish as long as they are too large to eat but become aggressive towards other pike cichlids. They may occassionally become aggressive towards other fish but usually tolerate tankmates in an appropriately-sized aquarium. They can be reclusive in a crowded aquarium or with sparse furnishing; provide plety of room and cover like plants and caves to encourage them to be more active. These cichlids are carnivores and should have a varied meaty diet. Some will accept pellets (or flakes; for very small fish) with time but foods like feeder shrimp; frozen shrimp; various worms and similar items are also appropriate. Feeder fish can be given occassionally if needed but do not provide enough nutrition as a primary diet.

Pastel Tiger Cichlid - Amphilophus lyonsi


Pastel Tiger Cichlid – Amphilophus lyonsi

As with other Amphilophus ; they are sandsifters and are best kept with a fine substrate. They may uproot any live plants or plant ornaments. Cichlids from the Amphilophus genus tend to be very aggressive and are best kept alone or in a very large tank with fish of a similar temperament (with extreme caution). They become territorial and their size and eating habits can also affect water quality. These fish are omnivores (eating both meaty foods and vegetable matter) but are more towards the carnivorous (meat-eater) end. They will eat both flakes (for very small fish) or appropriately-sized pellets as well as fresh and frozen meaty foods like beefheart; worms; krill; shrimp and similar foods.
