Red Devil American Cichlid  - 5-7CM

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

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 arrangement of the tank-like rocks and plants.

The Red Devil needs 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.
