I seen one in my pet store yesterday and I almost bought it to put with my Oscar but thought I better do abit of reaserch on them first. I can't find a real lot of info on them. Just that the males can grow to around 28cm and that they can live with other cichlids such as JD's and oscars. Any info would be much help!

Great fish I had one in with my Oscars, great clean up crew as they sift through the substrate looking for remaining food crumbs. Mine did fine with a small sized gravel of about 1-2mm, no issues. If you have a large gravel it may cause problems if it were to swallow it (same with an Oscar)

I think that my Brasiliensis was the best looking fish I kept, they have great colours as they mature.

In an appropriate size tank, not less than a 120GL tank.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

X2, i had one in my 90g with my oscar till the geo matured and then they went to war so the geo went away, great fish but like most other CA/SA cichlid they are territorial and need to be given space
