Rs. 9,550.00
Unit price  per 
With distinctive golden coloration and a much smaller adult size than other peacock bass of the genus Cichla, the Kelberi is among the most popular of these large predatory cichlids in the aquarium hobby. Originating from the rivers of Southeastern Brazil (including the Tocantins), these fish are popular food and sport fish in their native range. Like all peacock bass, Kelberis require very large aquariums and should only be kept by experienced hobbyists. Kelberi Peacock Bass are powerful predators, and will eat any fish that can fit in their large mouths. They are best kept in small groups with similarly sized cichlids although aggression and territoriality can become an issue as they reach maturity.
