These European tank-bred F1 beauties are a sight to behold in-person and will be a wonderful treat for any Dwarf Cichlid fan. This species hails from Igarapé do Cumaru, an affluent of the rio Paraná Atauí, which is itself a tributary of the middle rio Negro basin in Amazonas state, northwestern Brazil. It is believed to be endemic to the mid-and-upper parts of the Negro system. With a maximum size of just under 4 inches, this is indeed a Dwarf Cichlid but it is one that sports colors unlike any other. These incredibly rare animals will not last! The current specimens on offer are young, perhaps 1.5 long each, and are sold unsexed due to their younger age. Younger fish display muted, brown coloration with small blue dots until reaching adulthood. This fish ships individually bagged, one fish per bag
