Comments:
Water conditions are important to this fish. A failure to keep the tank very clean or straying from the water parameters above will prove to be a problem. Skin lesions and hole in the head can result if this advice is not heeded.

This fish is a true substrate spawner and does not mouthbrood like most of the other Geophagus.
