The term Acuticeps is latin for pointed head. This gorgeous hap will reach up to 8 inches in total length with long flowing red fins. In the wild this species will dwell in shallow waters over the sand. It prefers to stay out in the open and will prey on insect larvae and small cichlids. A rich protein diet such as our plankton gold flake would be perfect for this species in the aquarium.

This is a peace keeper cichlid as it will remain dominant in a tank without causing damage to the other top males.
