South American

Common Names Yellow Acara, Twin Spot Flag Cichlid

Comments (all info posted is about my fish only and the conditions which it is kept in, it is not generalized to all metae) Though most internet searches will tell you this fish is not picky mine however IS. Will only eat hikari sinking wafers but does love romaine lettuce, peas, FD krill and frozen foods. My metae is a great tank mate towards other cichlids and doesn't bother the smaller ones but was very aggressive towards silver dollars

Updated comments::
I would still state that this fish is mildly aggressive though it has taken a particular disdain towards my juvinile pearsei.
