Dwarf Flag Cichlid (Laetacara curviceps)

Out of stock

Remarks: Dwarf Flag Cichlids (Laetacara curviceps), also known as Smiling Acaras (from the Latin Laetus, meaning "happy"), are small cichlids from Brazil. They are peaceful and extremely colorful, making them a great breeding project or tankmate for other South American dwarves and schooling fish. 

Parents will take turns cleaning a piece of slate or rock on the substrate to use as a spawning ground. Pairs can be kept comfortably in a 10 gallon tank, but a 20 gallon or more would be preferable to avoid any aggression during courtship.
