Though most males are largely silver bodied,
some males will show an orange/red

The thing about this

far more prolific when conditions are right. Females both

will produce more batches in a breeding season that the Los
berros. It is not uncommon
to have spawns of 10-15 young routinely produced.that
These are a new fish to the hobby,
having been kept in captivity for just a couple years.
These are being kept here with the assumption that they can be kept the
same way as
other lateralis, with a close eye toward whether they have any special
needs or are
sensitive to issues not normally seen.
