Geophagus Jurupari - any 1st hand experience??
Finally found a home for my Convicts and Firemouths. Re did my tank yesterday. Added 3 peppered Cory's, 3 banded Cory's and - finally found a healthy "Eartheater". Always wanted one, but true Jurupari are hard to find. What an amazingly strange and beautiful fish! He is in my 60 gallon planted "blackwater" tank which he shares with 2 Red Severums, 1 male Blue Ram, 4 Angels and the 6 Cory's.
This fish is unlike any South American Cichlid I have ever owned. He is BRIGHT green with RED fins.
My question - does anyone have or have had these fish in THEIR tanks? Was the "Earth eating" an issue? It seems to me that it is a benefit because mine seems to just Clean the top layer - no digging, yet! He is about 3" head to tail so he is young. Have read that it takes years to reach full size.
Any reccomendations? Do's? Don'ts?
Thanks - Sam
