Geophagus sp. Tapajo “Red Head”, is a peaceful, colorful, easy to care for geophagus and does not get very large 6-7 inch. The males have a brighter red head and get a little larger than the female. These are captive bred and will accept a variety of foods.
They will do well in some planted aquarium, but will forage and dig through the substrate looking for food, which will disrupt the roots. It is not known to be a predator, but it will eat small fish if the opportunity arises. Best kept with large fish, such as angelfish, larger tetras and some peaceful cichlid.
