Uaru Cichlid Fish, also known as the Triangle Cichlid, is originally from the backwaters of the Amazon basin of South America and is now being captive bred. The coloration of these fish at maturity is mostly brown with a prominent horizontal black stripe covering the mid-section. Immature specimens are mottled in brown and black. They will typically achieve their adult coloration at about 4 inches in size.
Uaru Cichlids are omnivores, and will eat most prepared and frozen foods, including freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and ocean plankton, as well as flake food and Cichlid pellets.
