This fish is the real deal, a true Red Terror and not a Mayan cichlid. This fish can be difficult to find in the hobby, but is considered a prize by its owners. The Red Terror is considered by many to be one of the most aggressive cichlids in the cichlid world. These fish will typically dominate an aquarium, and if being kept with other large cichlids a very large tank over 100 gallons is recommended.
