Jurupari Cichlid

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. The jurupari have longer fins than most geophagus and very reflective blue and silver spots. AquariumFishSale.com imports Jurupari from Columbia when in season.
