Short description

Add rock work, driftwood and piping to provide hiding places in the tank. Decorated squeakers are a peaceful species but have been known to eat tiny tank mates. It will hold its own against larger tank mates but avoid fin nippers who may be tempted by its extended dorsal fin. This fish can even be kept with the larger American cichlids.
