Geophagus brasiliensis (Pearl Cichlid)
A variable species. Typically pinkish-green in colour with numerous pearly spots along. Fins are more or less reddish in colour, often with some blue markings as well. Females are smaller than males. Large males may develop a pronounced nuchal hump and often have quite elongate dorsal and anal fins.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
An "eartheater" cichlids, this fish forages by sifting mud for small prey animals such as worms.
Relatively peaceful towards other species but territorial among its own kind. Pairs work together to protect the nest, the male guarding the territory and the female minding the eggs. Quite tricky to breed though, because pairs are sometimes difficult to establish. Best results are obtained by rearing a group of juveniles together and then allowing them to pair off naturally.
