They are gorgeous SA cichlids. If you haven't had them before i would advise you to get your hands on red head tapajos. They are a bit easier to handle and are peacefull cichlids

I've only kept G. araguaia. They're pretty good looking.

Geophagus altifrons, Geophagus abalios, and Geophagus dicrozoster are three species commonly sold in lfs (and even Petsmart) as Geophagus surinamensis. All three get large but the first two have the most color.

I have kept all three (and many more), including Geophagus altifrons "Tocantins" and have to agree that it was my favorite.

Best looking is deffinately a subjective term to each person. But I'd vote G. winemilleri for true geo's, S. daemon for the Satanoperca genus, and "G." crassilabris for the fake, or orphaned, geo's.
