Each scale tip of its fluorescing green body is tipped with a small black spot. Various sheens of blue, orange, pink, and red are seen in various forms on different specimens. Plenty of rock and driftwood cover are needed to allow it space to hide as it stalks its next prey. Territorial by nature, it must be kept only with other semi-aggressive or aggressive fish of a size equal to or larger than it. As an eager eater, the Green Terror Cichlid will readily accept pellet, flake, and frozen food.
