The Emerald cichlid has become a bit out of fashion. This is a quite sad thing, for this impressive large cichlid – males can become up to 30 cm long, females always stay much smaller – is one of the most beautiful species of cichlid of South America.
For the first we can offer now German bed specimens of the population from the Rio Oyapoc. The splendid red colours makes the look a an artifical sport, but they are a true wild form!
For our customers: the fish have code 683082 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
Lexicon: Hypselecara: means “deep bodies Acara”; Acara is the Tupi word for cichlid. temporalis: means “with a high forehead”.
Common name: Emerald cichlid
