Eartheaters are a group of species, most belonging to the genus geophagus that share physical characteristics – when you see an earth eater you know it’s an eartheater – and behavioral characteristics, they eat earth and spit it. They live a long time, most are peaceful and elegant.
Daemon cichlids are closely related to Jurupari and often misidentified in the wild, so one is sometimes imported instead of the other. Both species grow out beautiful rainbow finnage and are somewhat aggressive.
