Mayan cichlids are a large and colorful species of Central American cichlids found in Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Known also as Cichlasoma urophthalmus and originally named by Dr. Gunther in 1862 this species have unique colors consisting of pinks and greys with dark vertical bands and ocellus spots on and near the caudal fin. In terms of lifespan the Mayan cichlid is known to live at least 11 years in captivity.
 
Mayan cichlids are somewhat abundant in the United States particularly in Florida where they were introduced into various waterways and have become quite prolific as a non-indigenous species. They were first reported in 1983 and established in portions of Florida Bay and the Everglades in southern Florida and are found in canals, rivers, lakes and marshes tolerating a wide range of salinities.
 
This cichlid for fresh water fish is actually considered a fun sport fish to catch because of its decent size and its feisty behavior when hooked. These large Central American cichlids are often mislabeled as Red Terror cichlids for sale in pet stores because of the difficulty in identifying them as smaller sizes. Both of these species are beautiful but the Mayan cichlids have some very unique colors in particular the pink and grey coloration against those dark velvet vertical bars. C. urophthalmus make great tank mates in large cichlid community tanks or with other large fish like Datnoids and Arowana and Oscars.
