Neotropical Cichlids are found in Central America on the Atlantic slope from the Patuca River in Honduras to the Matina River in Costa Rica. They are also found on the Pacific Slope from the Guasaula River in Nicaragua to the Tempisque and Bebedero rivers in Costa Rica.
They inhabit small lakes, ponds, drainage and swamp areas with muddy bottoms where they dwell among submerged logs, tangled roots, and leaf litter. They are tolerant of high temperatures and can survive in small bodies of water during dry periods. They were actually found established in a hot springs at Heviz, Hungary in in 1991. They feeding on insect larvae, detritus and algae.

These are hardy fish and very easy to care for, and they are also not difficult to breed. They do require very clean water, however, so it is recommended to change their water regularly. A fine gravel substrate with rocks and pieces of driftwood for hiding places will make this dwarf cichlid feel right at home. They will also enjoy a heavily planted aquarium and will not generally disturb the plants. If you are going to have plants though, it's best to make sure they are hardy and and well rooted.

Feed your cichlids flake or pelleted food daily, and supplement their menu with frozen or freeze-dried brine shrimp or tubifex worms. Feed your cichlid as much food as it will consume in 3 minutes, twice a day. Some species of African cichlids also like vegetable matter and can be given algae wafers, spirulina pellets or plants, like Anacharis, to nibble on.
