Red Head Tapajos (Geophagus sp.)

Out of stock

 Remarks: Geophagus sp. Red Head Tapajos is a small, relatively peaceful cichlid from South America. A sandy substrate is necessary due to their earth-eating habits. They sift mouthfuls of sand through their gills, pulling out bits of food to eat. Gravel presents a very high probability of choking or refusing to eat. 

Like all Geophagus, they prefer to be kept in groups of 4+ but will be okay as a breeding pair. They get along well with larger tetras and most South American cichlids.
