Ocellaris Peacock Bass (Cichla ocellaris)

Probably the most well known species of Peacock Bass, Cichla ocellaris is found throughout the Amazon basin where it is an important food fish. This species has been aquacultured and introduced as a sport fish in many other parts of the world. Like all Cichla, they are large, powerful, predatory fish and should be kept by experienced aquarists with suitably large aquariums to house these fish as adults.
