Keyhole Cichlid


Current Size: 4cm


Keyhole Cichlid or the Cleithracaramaronii is from South America found in the lower Orinoco Basin in Venezuela and the river basins in The Guianas. This single species is the only one in the genus Cleithracara.

They usually come from quiet waters in slow-moving ponds or rivers. It is neither flashy nor brightly coloured, and as such it does not show up at the fish stores very often. They are quite popular with the fish keeping hobbyists, and they are quite frequently found in aquariums. They are one of the most peaceful cichlids, being reclusive and shy and make a great addition to the water tank.
