Food and feeding

Origin

South America; Acara cichlids are to be found in the Amazonian River Basins of Brazil.

Sexing

Sexing can be difficult, it is best to purchase a group of juveniles and let them pair off if you wish to breed.

Breeding

Sometimes Acara cichlids can be difficult to breed; one way of getting them to spawn is to simulate a rainfall by dropping the water level for a couple of days and then raising it again. They are substrate spawners so provide them with flat rocks or similar to use as spawning sites. Both parents will protect the fry which can be fed on newly hatched brine shrimp when they are free swimming.

Lifespan

The expected life span for Acara cichlid is 12 years.

Short description

As with most cichlids, these fish produce a lot of waste so good filtration with regular water changes are a must.
