Barton's Cichlid (Herichthys bartoni) is an attractive but fairly uncommon fish. A male in breeding coloration is absolutely stunning: Jet-black on the bottom half, and bright white over the dorsal. They are normally tan-green with sparkling scales and a pattern of irregular black spots along the mid-line.

This species is very, very aggressive with its own kind. Keep only a male and a female together, if already an established pair. Other Central American cichlids should make fine tankmates. Tank decor can be simple, rocks, wood, and caves. Provide for them a diet rich in vegetable matter as well as occasional frozen foods and staple flake and pellet. This species is a substrate spawner.
