Geophagus argyrostictus

These fish are part of a group of fish known as the eartheaters. They sift substrate through their gills to extract food and consequently they should be provided with a fine substrate that is not sharp and likely to cause damage.

This particular Geophagus is rarely seen in the shops.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

These fish are generally peaceful, but do ensure that you provide them with adequate tank space. Given their tendency to sift throught the substrate they do require adequate filtration.

The males are generally larger than the females and have more pointed fins.
