One of the most beautiful Geophagus species has to be the Geophagus altifrons, a gorgeous eartheater from Brazil. Actually all of the species in this genus are attractive. But G. altifrons is particular is something special to look at. Males and females display the same markings but in most cases the males are much larger than their counterparts. As is with most of the eartheaters a decent size community tank is in order. This cichlids species does well in group of 5 or more fish.
 
Geophagus altifrons is a biparental mouthbrooder which means the pair will spawn on a substrate surface and the female will collect and hold the eggs in her mouth for up to several weeks there by releasing the fry. Like other Geophagus cichlids it seems keeping one male to multiple female’s works well in a community tank. This is one of the larger species being recorded reaching over eight inches with very long extensions. Filtration is very important so keep up with weekly water changes and invest in a good canister filter. This species is susceptible to HITD or hole in the head disease if conditions are neglected.
 
For the most part they are very peaceful and spend their time filling up their mouths with soft sand or substrate sifting for food while spitting out the sand via their mouth and gill openings. These species is recorded as being omnivorous so it may go after small fish that it can fit in their mouths. But for the most part, most sinking spirulina cichlid pellets and prepared aquarium foods are welcomed. Frozen or freeze dried krill, bloodworms and even blanched squash or zucchini accepted. Offer smaller portions of food but offer more feedings works well.
