Thread: Mellow Cichlids: A Primer
11-24-2008, 02:50 PM #21
very gentle cichlids....
I always loved the south american eartheaters! They are a whole genus of docile and beautiful cichlids. Great scavenegers, nice colors, and they can tolerate almost any other cichlids. Not to mention, if you use sand as a substrate, they will 'sift' through, pushing clouds of sand out their gills.
I keep 1 male redhumped eartheater with 3 females. They almost lay eggs simultaneously.
