Nicaragua Cichlids have become quite a staple in the aquarium hobby over the years. Their colours and being an easy fish to breed can attribute to their popularity. Not quite as aggressive as some of its cousins, this cichlid does well in any larger sized aquarium, with large, active and docile tankmates. They are also very hardy and can take quite a range of water quality temperature.
