Amphilophus robertsoni (False firemouth cichlid, Cichlasoma robertsoni)

This fish is similar to Amphilophus margaritifer in basic appearance and some authors consider the two species to be mere variants of the same species. Amphilophus robertsoni is deep bodied with a greenish-silver body and a series of dark vertical bands. These bands are darkest at about the midline of the flank, forming a horizontal band of dark blotches.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

This species has not been kept in aquaria much but it can be assumed to be similar to other robust Central American cichlids of similar size in terms of care and breeding. Wild fish prefer slow moving waters with a soft sandy or muddy substrate.
