Salvin's Cichlid "Tabasco/Grijalva" (Trichromis salvini)

Out of stock

Remarks: Trichromis salvini are found from Mexico to Honduras. The variant found in the murky waters of Tabasco (or Grijalva) are said to be among the most colorful, with much more red in the body and fins. This species appears to show strong aggression towards members of their own species, but will be calmed by other cichlids too large to attack and dither fish, such as Swordtails and larger characins.
