The Mayan Cichlid (Cichlasoma uropthlamus) is often confused with the very similar True Red Terror (Amphilophus festae), especially as juveniles. The Mayan Cichlid has a black spot with a light ring that covers the entire base of the tail, while the True Red Terror's black spot does not extend beyond the top half of the tail base.

Hiding places like rocky caves and roots should be available to these fish. Due to their size and aggression, they are best kept in a species tank. Feed them meaty foods, frozen and pellets. They are substrate spawners and will delight in digging up their tank substrate, as well as any decor, especially when preparing to spawn.
