Remarks: Festivums, or Flag Cichlids (Mesonauta insignis), are some of the most popular aquarium fish from South America. Usually found in slow-moving waters, these peaceful cichlids fit nicely with any peaceful South American or community tank. They sport red eyes, long trailing pelvic fins, and a thick black band running diagonally from the posterior tip of the dorsal fin through their eye and ending at the mouth. When stressed, their stress bars appear running vertically throughout their body.
