This fish was first identified and described in 1824, so it has been a known species for quite some time. The name geophagus when translated roughly comes out to "earth eater" which is in itself a description of one of the typical behaviors for this fish. Geophagus are known to dig through the substrate of an aquarium, in search of its next meal. Feeding a sinking food when keeping this fish will allow it to exhibit this natural behavior, but it will come to the top to feed with other fish if it must. This fish will eat nearly any type of fish food it is offered, so feeding it is rarely ever an issue.
