Gordeez's fish

Scientific Name: aequidens rivulatus sp.
Other Names: Green Terror, White Saum, Gold Saum
Family : Cichlidae
Order : Perciformes
Class : Actinopterygii

Place of Origin: Eastern Ecuador, Peru

Max Size: up to a foot but more often only about 8 to 10 inches

Tank size: 55 if just one (male), 180 if you want 2 (to males will not work)

Temperature: 72*F to 82*F (20-24*C)

pH: hard water with ph neutral to slightly alkaline (can tolerate a range of water chemistry)

Tank Level: Middle (has been said they prefer still water)

Diet: pellets, beef heart, blood worms, and shrimp (varity is good)

Temperament: very territorial, only single males or a pair of females can be kept with other fish, and breeding pairs will kill everything else in the tank.

Breeding: reach sexual maturity around 3 inches will usually breed in “open water” provide a flat rock to lay eggs will lay around 300 to 400, male may attack the female so provide hiding spot for her. They will guard the eggs and fry viciously, there good parents. The female will take the dominant role in guarding the eggs

sexing:male: Generally larger bright iridescent greenish blue highlights mostly on males, and the nuchal hump. The tail is reticulated and fringed in bright red. Males usually have a blue anal fin

female: drab olive green lacks the metallic look of the males, a darker color, and a more round shape, females usually have a green anal fin

Decoration: plastic plant, large rocks and drift wood, real plant can be used but start early cause these guys like to up root plants

Often confused with the Blue Acara, these guys are very aggersive and should be kept alone or in pairs but could be kept with other ciclids of the same temperament and can take care of themselves

looks good. the only thing that i saw that could be changed would be for where it says to keep 2. 180 is bit much for a minimum I think. 2 could easily be kept in a 125g maybe even a 75g :thumbup:

you should put aequidens rivulatus sp. because it is a different profile from the true aequidens rivulatus. I heard that they don't get as big, and are more aggressive. Jeff rapps will have some of the true ones for sale soon. There are pics on his site.

I would do a full water change, i would take out the Green Terror and any other fish in the tank, and do a complete cleaning of the glass, rocks, substrate, etc.... then refill the tank with new water, do not clean out the filters because they are biologically cycled, so do not clean them.

then re-add all the fish to the tank after refilling it back up.

I have a 6 inch Green Terror Female, and have owned numerous males in the past, and i have never seen anything like that happen to mine.

So i would do a complete drain, clean, and refill
