Blue acara (lat. Aequidens pulcher) for long period of time was one of the most popular South America cichlid fishes kept in a tank for many generations of aquarists. There is a good reason that its name (pulcher) from Latin – means beautiful.
Green terror cichlid (lat Andinoacara rivulatus, syn. Aequidens rivulatus) is a very bright colored fish and its body is covered with bright blue scales. But this is not all about her rich color, it also behaves in a very interesting way. Green terror is a common name for all three sub species: Andinoacara stalsbergi, Andinoacara sp. Gold/Silver saum and Andinoacara rivulatus.
Jaguar cichlid or managuense cichlid (lat. Parachromis managuensis, earlier addressed as Cichlasoma managuense) is a large, raptorial, but very beautiful fish, and it is good for large cichlid fans. Unlike other cichlid, jaguar obtains the most of its color when it becomes reproductive.
For example, the juveniles have noticeable black bands on their body and the mature fish becomes spotted, so due to these spots they got their “jaguar” name.
