Overview: An absolutely gorgeous fish once it matures. These fish make excellent additions to a community aquarium of other peaceful species of and appropriate size. Geophagus are earth-eaters, so they sift through sand or mud through their gill plates all day long looking for food, detritus, etc. They are generally peaceful unless they're spawning and are a good centerpiece species.
Setup Considerations: A pre-filter sponge to catch substrate particles is recommended because these fish can kick up particulates from the substrate as they forage for food.
Specific Care Requirements: Geophagus appreciate sandy or fine substrate to pick through. They enjoy being in groups together.
Diet: Peaceful Omnivore. These fish are not picky at all. They will readily eat standard aquarium fare including flakes, pellets, wafers, Repashy, frozen foods, and live foods.
