Cichlasoma salvini (The Salvini, Heros salvini)
A brilliantly coloured fish, especially when in breeding condition. Basic colour is yellow with two rows of black blotches in horizontal bands. Red and blue flecks mark the fins. A reddish area develops on the lower half of the body when males are in breeding condition. Females generally lack this and have less brilliant colours.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A territorial, aggressive predator. Wild fish feed on small invertebrates and fish. Adapts well to captivity but is territorial so should only be housed with other robust cichlids of similar size. Easy to breed, this species is an open spawner and both parents guard the clutch of around 500 eggs. The fry grow quickly and are easy to rear.
