The Honduran Red Point was first introduced in 2002, and it is still debated whether the fish is a color variant of the popular Convict cichlid, or if it is a new species all together. Behavioral differences and some minute physical differences point to the latter conclusion. Gray to gold with faint or darker black vertical stripes, this fish has red in the fins as well as some green tinting to the over all body.

Semi-aggressive, it is best to keep this fish with other South American cichlids of mild temperament. However, it will be very aggressive toward other archocentrus, so keep one per tank.

Decor can consist of driftwood, rocks, caves, and plants, as well as a soft substrate. Feed a variety of foods, frozen, pellet, and flake. These fish are substrate spawners.

Honduran red point


My favorite fish! I have been keeping them for 3 years, they are mostly community safe. I keep mine with Egyptian mouthbrooders, Australialian rainbows, Madagascar rainbows and a long fin bristle nosed pleco.
