Product Description

There seems to be some confusion in the hobby on whether or not the Honduran Red Point (Amatitlania sp. “honduran red point”) is the same as Amatitlania siquiaIt is not, and remains an undescribed species. 

One of the most easily-bred species in the hobby, it’s ideal for the newcomer to cichlids and fish breeding in general. Although a great beginners species in many ways, it is best maintained in a species tank. It is an aggressive, territorial species that becomes downright violent when breeding. It will take on fish several times its own size and win with ease. In a large tank you can keep it in a community of robust Central American cichlids.
