Pearl CichlidGeophagus brasiliensis
The Pearl Cichlid is a handsome fish, but it is also territorial and prone to digging up substrate. Territorial behaivour is directed towards other individuals of the same or similar species but the fish can be mixed well with other robust fish of a similar size. Provide a few hiding spots and avoid using all but the most robust plant species. Occasional meaty foods will improve health.
