The Firemouth Cichlid grows to 5 inches. This relatively peaceful species should not be kept with very small fish but otherwise is suitable for most community tanks. It can be somewhat territorial but poses no real threat to any good-sized tank mates. The fish has a brilliant red underside, a smoky gray upper body, and dark splotches scattered along its flanks.
Living Environment : The Firemouth Cichlid can be fed all flake and freeze-dried foods, and will take pellets when it grows larger.
