This beautiful South American cichlid makes up for its temperament with its fantastic green-blue speckles throughout its body. The Green Terror Cichlid has an interesting pattern of iridescent green-blue stripes and speckles on its face as well. The finnage is long and tipped in orange. Males develop a large bump on their head.
As their name would suggest, the Green Terror can be quite aggressive. Its large adult size also makes it a tough fish to keep. For tankmates, while young, any other South American cichilds of similar temperament will do fine. With full-sized adults, it is best to keep them in a pair, one pair to a 100+ gallon tank. Be sure to pair Green Terrors at a young age. Older males and females are less likely to form bonds and will hassle each other.
As for tank decor, they like a typical cichlid decorating scheme, lots of rockwork, caves, and plenty of open-swimming room. Plants will most likely be uprooted and torn apart.
The Green Terror will accept a variety of foods including a well-balanced cichlid flake or hearty pellet. Frozen meaty foods will also be appreciated. They are relatively easy to breed. They are substrate spawners and both male and female will care for the eggs and fry.
