Amphilophus lyonsi (Lyons' Cichlid)

Robust, laterally compressed cichlid characterised (when mature) by having around eight eye spots along the midline of the body. On juveniles, these markings are less obvious. Sexually mature males turn from blue-grey to a vivid orange with red around the throat and shoulder and on the fins. An attractive but relatively uncommon cichlid in the trade.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Wild fish feed primarily on aufwuchs, plant material including seeds, aquatic invertebrates and organic detritus. Diet should therefore include a mix of green as well as invertebrate foods. Otherwise care is similar to other members of the genus. Aggressive and territorial. Combine only with robust species of similar size. Likes to dig and will uproot plants. These fish are not that common in the trade. Breeding is similar to other members of the genus.
