Blue Acara

Blue Acara
Aequidens Pulcher

Length: 8.0"
Sex: The male has slightly longer fins.
Feeding: Loves all types of live foods.
Social Behaviour: Territorial. It is fairly peaceful except when breeding.

Up Keep: Needs a good sized aquarium with hardy plants and places for hiding.
Breeding: Fish pair up and will spawn on rocks. Both parents will protect and care for the fry.
Comments: Blue Acaras are fairly peaceful cichlids. They are territorial but don't show as much aggression as other cichlids. They are tough to keep but easy to bread. They are a good choice for a first time cichlid owner.
