Yellow Belly CichlidCichlasoma salvini
The Yellow Belly Cichlid is occasionally confused with the much more peaceful Rainbow Cichlid. This fish is predatory and can be quite aggressive so should be carefully mixed with other large, robust fishes. The fish will form pairs, are good parents and will adapt to a wide range of water conditions. Provide hiding spots and open swimming areas
