Yeah Geo is the common shortened name for the Geophagus genus, Brasiliensis is the species name, there's quite a few different types around.

Mine grew fairly quickly, then I moved it into the Oscar tank. It died when it had an injured mouth. I don't know if it was attacked or hit the glass really hard.

Fish are so hard to take photos of :P

Heres the little guy,Hes just shy of 2 inches,Hes probley the most active fish in the tank!









Heres my Oscar,About 6-7 inches



Severum about 5 inches



Silver Dollars





Rare shot of my JD



And the tank




My Oscar killed my Blue Acara the other day,I had the Blue Acara for around 3months and i dont think it even grow 1mm! He was about the same size as the Pearl so hopefuly my O will leave him alone.

give your pearl more hiding places. I would change the substrate to sand as well. They are much happier if they can sift some sand in their mouths

yes The pearl really needs a much smaller substrate to be happy and grow ... its probably active trying to find some sand to sift..

fish other than that look really good!
