The Mota Cichlid (Parachromis motaguensis) is also known as the Motaguense or the False Yellowjacket Cichlid. The Red Mota Cichlid is a variant with a reddish base color covered in black speckle-like markings.


Though one of the more passive of the Parachromis cichlids, these fish are very aggressive and are best kept alone or in a species-only aquarium. They are carnivores and should be fed a varied diet of fresh, prepared and frozen meaty foods.
