Satanoperca jurupari (Demon eartheater, Geophagus jurupari)
A large, robustly built cichlid with a distinctive profile thanks to its large mouth. Basic colour is greenish-blue with silvery spots, though this varies depending on its mood. Any sexual dimorphism is slight and not reliable, though males are said to be more slender.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Territorial but not overtly aggressive, this species works well with midwater characins, peaceful catfish and any other species that don't impose on their essentially tolerant personalities. Do not mix with more aggressive cichlids: they are easily bullied.
Wild fish feed on detritus, algae, decaying plant material, and small invertebrates they uncover in the mud. Feeding a similar range of green and meaty foods is recommended. Essentially hardy, but intolerant of poor water quality.
These cichlids are among the relatively few South American mouthbrooders. Eggs are deposited on a flat stone, and after a day or so the parents begin to mouthbrood them.
