We received from a German breeder these pretty Jewel Cichlids. The fish cannot assigned to any species that is scientifically described. Possibly it represents a hybrid. If so, it is a very well done cross! The lateral spot that is so typical for most species of Jewel Cichlid is missing completely. The bright red lips are real eyecatchers, so we chose the name Hemichromis sp. Firelips.
For our customers: the animal has code 536753 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
