Geophagus for Sale Meet the Eartheaters from South America

african cichlid care
 
 
The genus Geophagus contains some two dozen or so species which primarily are found in South America with the exception of one species, G. crassilabris from Panama. These cichlids are relatively peaceful with most of their time spent sifting through the detritus looking for food. Some species can be aggressive and one in particular is G. brasiliensis also known as the pearl cichlid. Use this page as a resource to find Geophagus for sale and visit frequently.
 
Geophagus species truly come in different body shapes, sizes and coloration's. Some have very long filamentous extensions of their fins while some display large developed nuchal humps of their heads like the token Redhump Eartheater, Geophagus steindachneri.
 
Geophaginae range in size from medium to fairly large cichlids and many have the elongated nose profile which makes them easily identifiable. The purpose for their long noses is to aid in picking up large mouthfuls of sand or earth while rummaging for food. Many species of Geophagus are mouth breeding cichlids but some species are substratum spawners, so not all species are limited to one particular type of breeding.
 
It’s best to keep these types of cichlids in larger community tanks which will afford them the space them need to forage for food. Many of the species of Geophaginae have been spawned successfully in the aquarium. Because of their diversity some species spawn in pairs in typical cichlid fashion, while others work well in small harems with one male to several females. Water quality and additional aeration will serve this group of fish well.
 
If you fancy plants in your cichlid tank you may consider using Java fern called Microsorum as these fish are known to dig vigorously and will uproot plants. There is a great article on the most popular species of Geophagus called A Survey of Eartheaters which is worth reading. Also its worth noting they enjoy a current of moving water and this can be accomplished using inexpensive power heads that will also increase the oxygen content in the tank.
