Red Head Tapajos Cichlid

Red head tapajo cichlids, named after their bright red markings and the river they were first found, grow slowly and these fish are difficult to breed. As an eartheater they do like to dig around and they are territorial. The color of the Tapajo cichlids are stronger than most and these fish command a little higher price.
