Red Devil American Cichlid  - 7CM

This large American Cichlid is a fish with Character and attitude, so if you are after a fish which brings live to your tank this would be a grea choice.  The red Devil will bring great color to your tank also.  They come in a variety of colours like Yellow or even bright red.  Cross breeding has created Devils with a mixture of two or more colours.

The Red Devil Cichlid is a hardy fish that can survive most tank conditions as long as they (tank conditions) are reasonable. However, first time hobbyists may find some difficulty keeping this fish due to the fact that it grows huge with time. If the tank is relatively smaller, it may be very aggressive towards other tank mates. It may also destroy the tanks arrangement like rocks and plants.

The Red Devil need larger aquariums, tanks of 230L is the recommended minimum water volume, the general rule is the larger the aquarium, the less the aggression that is displayed. If keeping more than one specimen then you really need to house them in at least an aquarium that will hold 570L of water, anything less then they will attack their tank mates, each fish needs the space to create its own territory.

There should be a medium water flow and make sure that the heaters are covered with a suitable guard to prevent any risk of injury from burns if your Red Devil decides to move the heater at all.
