The Red Devil has a background color that varies from pale pink to orange-red from individual to individual. It may have black spots on the body as well. Mature males will develop large fleshy lips and a large hump on their head.
This can be a very aggressive cichlid and care should be taken in choosing tankmates. Large catfish and other large cichlids are generally the best choice. The tank should have lots of open swimming room for these large fish. Feed them a variety of meaty foods like pellets, krill, and earthworms.
