Geophagus winemilleri

Typical deep-bodied greenish-gold eartheater cichlid with a black blotch about halfway along its flank. Apart from the clear pectoral fins, the fins are red with blue markings. The pelvic, anal and tail fins have white extensions. Colouration outside of sexual maturity is rather weak. Once mature these fish are extremely brightly coloured. No obvious differences between the sexes.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Basic care similar to other geophagines. Requires a large tank with excellent water quality and minimal nitrate. Lots of open space, with plants and bogwood limited to the periphery. Soft, silica sand is essential for the substrate. Floating vegetation is helpful as these fish do not like bright light. Gregarious but territorial, best kept as a mated pair or in a group of six or more specimens. Feeds mostly on infaunal invertebrates like worms and insect larvae, but takes prepared foods readily.
