When you buy a young Salvin’s cichlid (lat. Trichromis salvini) it doesn’t look very attractive. But things change when the fish grows up. It becomes a very bright and good looking fish, it is quite noticeable in a tank and it draws the eye.
Just like all cichlid species it can be quite aggressive, since this is a territory dependent fish. Also it is a predator, so it’ll treat all small sized fishes as food. Therefore it should be kept separately from others or with other species.
