The Blue Acara (Andinoacara pulcher) is a freshwater fish native to the slow flowing rivers and lakes of Central and South America. They are from the cichlidae family, a well-known group among fishkeeping enthusiasts.
They are a relatively tolerant fish that has a peaceful temperament. It will rarely cause you any trouble and will get along with most fish just fine. The only time you need to worry about aggression, is during breeding time (we will cover this later in more detail).
These fish can live for a relatively long time, especially if you compare them to other freshwater fish. With good care and aquarium conditions, they can live up to 10 years. In the wild this number is closer to 20 years.
Like many other members of the Cichlidae family, the Blue Acara is a popular choice for many aquarists.
