Firemouth cichlid (Thorichthys meeki)

The firemouth cichlid is a long time favorite amongst beginner aquarists because of its unique red throat. These fish do best with other larger cichlids but be sure to leave plenty of room for them to have their territory.

An easy breeder as well, the firemouth cichlid is usually a good parent and will often raise their own fry with little to no work.
