Red Side Cichlid (Amphilophus istlanus)

Out of stock

Remarks: Males will develop a nuchal hump in the forehead region. There are some regional variations in color for this species as well. Some believe that Amphilophus istlanus is a naturally occurring hybrid, but so far genetic results are inconclusive. They are very aggressive and should not be housed with anything more timid in nature.
