Names:Red Headed Cichlid, Quetzal
Genus:Cichlasoma Synspilum
Cichlid Tankmates: many of the large less aggressive cihlids will go well, to name a few, Bifaciatus, Bay Snooks, Black Belts and the list goes on...  apparently Mature adults dont go well with other fish of this species..
Non-Cichlid Tankmates:Any large cats will do as long as there not overly aggressive.... the Synspilum can hold it's own if need be though.
Water: Neutral to a little Acidic....soft water
