Buy @ Sims Tropical Fish

Medium-sized, deep bodied cichlid with a shiny, greenish-gold body colour and a distinctive black eye-spot on the gill covers. A series of dark blotches run along the midline of the flank from behind the eye to the base of the tail, almost forming a continuous band. A second, weaker series can be seen between the midline of the fish and the top of its body. Females are less strongly marked.
