Native to the waters of Brazil and Bolivia, these popular South American Ciclids are a great community fish, and are extremely popular due to their hardiness. Often used as a centerpiece to the community, this fish graciously swims and hovers the bottom dwelling areas. They are territorial and may shoo off other fish around it’s vicinity, but generally they are peaceful and don’t do any harm.
