    Abstract

    Blue eyes, Archocentrus spilurum is a Central American fish species. It is considered a relatively peaceful cichlid and it is not very fussy when it comes to water conditions and temperature. Among the cichlids, blue eyes are suitable for community tank because of its peaceful nature. It may not be the most colorful, but they are very pretty little fish and their blue eyes set them apart from other cichlids. In nature it prefers shallow areas with sand, mud and rock substrates as well as slow moving waters of the lower riverine valley areas. Hence, vigorous water movements are not necessary in the aquarium. It inhabits the middle and bottom regions of the tank.
