Nicaraguan Cichlid - colour localities

Post by Nicaraguensis »

Hi I'm looking to keep some Nicaraguan Cichlids in a 75 gallon tank and I've noticed quite a bit of variance in the colours as I've seen in images and videos.

Some are a very clean blue and yellow with the spot or line in black where as others have quite a few irregular black marks on their flanks. Sometimes the ones with black marks are also quite intense with the blues on the face too?

I know they come from Costa Rica and Nicaragua and I think 2-3 locations in each country. Does anyone have any guidance on which type comes from where? Or does anyone here have any wild collection photos or videos we might be able to decipher something from?

Thanks N.
