Nandopsis haitiensis, commonly known as the Haitian cichlid, Black Nasty, and Odo, is native to the fast moving freshwater rivers and streams of Haiti. These fish live up to their common names, as they are highly aggressive and simply cannot be housed with other fish. Minimum tank size for a single specimen is 75 gallons, as they can reach sizes of up to 15 inches.


Haitian Cichlids should have plenty of rock or wood furnishing the tank. They are omnivores, and should be supplied with foods like large pellets, worms, spirulina or frozen cichlid formulas for a well-rounded diet. These fish may be housed in breeding pairs with sufficient space, though pairs should be established early.

black nasty cichlid


Great fish very healthy came package very Good thru mail hard to find cichlid gotta get another

Black Nasty


This cichlid has quickly become a favorite of mine. It has lots of personality, a great appetite, and can hold its own against my Parachromis Dovii Cichlids! You will never find this fish in a local pet shop unless you live in Lancaster PA.

Black Nasty Cichlid


This fish is almost impossible to get at your local petshop. It is a very hardy, fast growing cichlid with lots of personality and a great appetite!
