The T-Bar Cichlid is an attractive Central American Cichlid which will do well in a community of other medium sized cichlids. The fish are relatively peaceful although will be territorial during breeding. The aquarium should contain a sandy or rounded gravel substrate, hiding spots and caves, and a few hardy plants. The males will grow significantly larger than females and will develop a forehead hump. T-Bar cichlids are closely related to Convict cichlids and the two may interbreed, so should not be kept together.
