A large growing Cichlid native to freshwater rivers and lakes of Southern Mexico, the Fenestratus Cichlid is a morphologically variable species that is known to occur in several different color or pattern forms in the wild. The Marble, Black and White, or Calico form is a relatively recent addition to the hobby and is highly sought after due to its spectacular pattern of black, iridescent blue and reddish-orange patches on a base pure white body color. This pattern will change significantly as fish mature and makes for a truly unique and impressive show fish as an adult. In the aquarium, they are an aggressive, boisterous fish that requires plenty of open swimming space as well as lots of cover. They are sensitive to water quality so frequent large water changes should be considered essential to long term success with this species
