Cupid Cichlid (Biotodoma cupido)

Description

 

The Cupid Cichlid, scientifically known as Biotodoma cupido, is a freshwater fish species found in the Amazon River basin in South America. Known for its unique shape and striking coloration, the Cupid Cichlid is a popular choice for aquarists interested in keeping cichlids from the Amazon region.

Here are the details and care requirements for the Cupid Cichlid:

  1. Temperature: The Cupid Cichlid thrives in water temperatures ranging from 24°C to 28°C (75°F to 82°F). Maintaining stable and appropriate water temperatures is crucial for their overall health and well-being.

  2. Minimum Tank Size: Due to their size and territorial behavior, it is recommended to house the Cupid Cichlid in a tank that is at least 75 gallons (approximately 284 liters) or larger. Providing ample swimming space and hiding spots is essential for their comfort and to minimize aggressive behavior.

The Cupid Cichlid is known for its peaceful temperament compared to other cichlid species, making it suitable for community tanks with other non-aggressive fish species. However, they may display territorial behavior, especially during breeding.

In terms of diet, the Cupid Cichlid is omnivorous and will readily accept a variety of high-quality cichlid pellets, as well as live and frozen foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and other small invertebrates.

Understanding their specific care requirements, including appropriate water parameters, tank setup, and suitable tankmates, is crucial to ensure the well-being and overall health of the Cupid Cichlid in a home aquarium.
