  • Two female 𝘩𝘦𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘰𝘴𝘱𝘪𝘭𝘢 in a showdown

𝘖𝘴𝘤𝘶𝘳𝘢 𝘩𝘦𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘰𝘴𝘱𝘪𝘭𝘢 aka the Montecristo Cichlid is the most convenient fish I have ever kept. The fish is strong, but not agressive when compared to other Central American Cichlids.

You will get the best out of them when you keep them as a group. Because the interaction between them results in some interesting behaviour and very interesting colours.

  • Vieja heterospila, a very timid Central American cichlid for its size.
I recommend to combine this species with Thorichthys or Astatheros

  • Dozens of cichlids feel so happy in the 😱😱😱 6750 liters (500x180x75 cm) Mbuna Reef Tank Paradise. And they grew a lot since the first launch in November, 2017. Watch till the end for a surpise 🎉🎉🎉 ARSTONE 3D module rocks in Basalt Gneiss and natural råda sand in different sizes were used. The back and side glass of the huge tank were decorated with ARSTONE 3D XL rocks. The installation process: https://www.facebook.com/arstone.eu/posts/1806634479370617
