This pretty cichlid has been described scientifically only in 2012. Up to that time it was known among hobbyists under the name of Krobia sp. “Xingu Red Head”. This nice relative of Aequidens is the ideal cichlid species for beginners, because it is one of the most peaceful species of cichlid at all. Besides this the fish have beautiful colours and the fish stay small: less than 10 cm, which means that they are dwarf cichlids. K. xinguensis are typical open brooders with biparental family.
For our customers: the fish have code 683263 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
