Black Convict Cichlid
Central and South American cichlids range from rare atramaculatus to common blue acara, though common is not a fair word for this uncommonly peaceful pretty fish. Aquarium Fish Sale imports as many as we can to provide a broad selection for our aquarists. Convict cichlids are so easy to breed they are never caught in the wild. AquariumFishSale.com sources convicts from a pond breeder in Florida. These species will get aggressive as they grow, but adapt well to other large species in the tank.
