 Names & Comments 


Comments: These are awesome fish with great coloring. Many aquarists think this is the most beautiful Central American Cichlid.

Origin: The ancestors of the Redhead came from Mexico. But now they live in aquariums all over the world. 

Maximum Size: In aquariums, they are able to grow to be about 14" long.

Behaviors: Redheads are usually aggressive but not as aggressive as the most aggressive Cichlids.

Compatibility: These fish do best with similar Cichlid species plus perhaps a Pictus Catfish and a Pleco. 

Click here to read more about compatible groups of pet fish.

Temperature: Redheads live best from about 75 to 80-degrees F. with 78 being perhaps ideal.

Click here to learn about aquarium temperature, aquarium thermometers, and aquarium heaters.

Feeding: Premium Fish Food Pellets is the best food for Cichlids to eat.

It's best to feed them small pellets when young, then gradually increase of the pellets as the size of the fish increases.

Water Conditions: These fish can adapt to most types of water, and so as usual it's best not to try to change the pH or hardness of the water.

Click here for a lot more information about aquarium water conditions.

Aquarium Size: Redheads will eventually need to live in an aquarium with at least 150-gallons of water, but of course bigger is better.

Decor: Redheads do not need gravel, and a layer of gravel more than 1/4" thick will usually fill with bits of uneaten food that will contaminate the water.

Click here for more about aquarium gravel.

Live plants are beautiful and improve the water quality, but Cichlids like these Redheads will dig up any plants that may be in the tank.

Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel Filters are highly recommended.

Most 80-gallon aquariums have room along the back for two Penguin 350B Filters, and this is sort of the minimum set up for Redheads.

Better is a 120, 150, or 200-gallon aquarium with as many Penguin 350B Filters as will fit across the back.

The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range.

Click here to learn more about using Lava Rocks in aquariums.

Life Span: Redheads can live for several years.

Keep the water conditions excellent and feed them premium foods, and they'll most likely live for many years and may breed to produce the next generation of fish for your aquarium.

Gender: The males start to get larger and more colorful, while the females stay duller and smaller.

Breeding: The male and female work together to clean and prepare a place, which is usually in a back corner on the bottom of the aquarium.

The Redhead female will then lay her eggs there. The male and female then ferociously guard the eggs and babies, after they hatch.

Popularity: The Redheads have been a popular aquarium fish for may years.

Names: Their scientific name is Paraneetroplus synspilus.

Variations: Redheads occur over a wide geographic area, and their coloration varies from place to place.
