Remarks: Chocolate Cichlids (Hypselecara temporalis) are similar to Severums in that they are fairly peaceful for their rather large size. They can reach up to 12", and while reports have indicated that 55 gallons may be "enough," it is recommended that you keep them in no less than 75 gallons of water. They are tolerant of most water conditions but prefer softer, warmer water.
