Herichthys labridens, La Mojarra Caracolera

Classification: Species overview, Central and North America.


Herichthys labridens is a Cichlid that certainly calls attention, it's beautiful breeding colors make it one of the most beautiful Central American Cichlids, and, however, it is also a Cichlid of which few things are known, being too much to know. Observations here written correspond to my own, carried out over several years, in which I have spent countless hours submerged in the waters of its habitat. I have also had the experience of captive maintenance and breeding of this species in my home aquariums.
