The Nicaragua Cichlid (Hypsophrys nicaraguensis) is also known as the Macaw cichlid for its distinct coloration. It ranges from orange-pink to red-orange toward the back end, and beautiful blue-green on the front of the body. Fins are often very long and may be bright red in color. Females are slightly duller.

This is a tough fish, so be sure you keep it with similarly aggressive fish. One established pair per tank is best, as males will fight. Tank decor can consist of rock and driftwood, plus plenty of open swimming area. Feed them a variety of foods, flake, pellet, frozen meaty foods, and fresh vegetable matter.
