Aequidens metae





Aequidens metae

Also known by the common name "twin spot flag cichlid". This New World cichlid got its name from Rio Meta (Meta River, in Colombia, South America) where it was collected for the first time. Endemic to just a few rivers of Colombia. Characterised by the lateral spot (separated by two light bands) this fish shows an exceptionally mild temperament in the aquarium. It is peaceful and tranquil even with conspecifics and makes an ideal addition to community aquariums. The fish will normally not dig not eat plants so a decoration with plants is feasible. It needs some hiding places though. It  thrives in neutral pH and reaches a final length of  20 cm although in the aquarium it may become somewhat bigger. The fish shown in these photos are wild caught specimens and has a length of about 16 cm.
