Midas Cichlid Relationship

Amphilophus Labiatus
is the closest as well as most similar relative of the Midas Cichlid. Often, these two fish – that both come originally from Central America – are confused with each other.

Basically, the Amphilophus Labiatus differs from the Amphilophus Citrinellus because of its mouth section. Also its frontal hump reminds one more of a bump, that increases in size in male cichlids during courtship. The body form of Amphilophus Labiatus, that is also called Blood Red Devil in Asia, is long; the Citrinellus’ shape, in contrast, appears more robust.

Amphilophus Trimaculatus – also a spectacular species from Central America – has a body shape similar to that of the Midas Cichlid. However, its design is completely different and this fish does not develop a big frontal hump. The A.Trimaculatus’ character is just as rowdily as the A. Ctrinellus’ and absolutely prevailing.

A. Trimaculatus, affectionately nicknamed Trimac or rainbow cichlid, has the most beautiful colors within the Amphilophus family. With its red eye color and the pretty black splendor spots on its temples, this cichlid was used as the basis for Flower Horn hybrids. The Trimacs can obtain a length of up to 30 – 35 cm.

Cross breedings with the Amphilophus Labiatus are quite common in an aquarium. These two species of Amphilophus look rather alike, but do not live in the same ntural habitats.

A very popular hybrid of the Midas Cichlid is the so-called Blood Red Parrot. This hybrid has already caused a lot of dispute among tank fans – keyword: torture breed. Its outer appearance strongly reminds one of a VW beetle pasted up with a young songbird’s pecker. This fish – mostly orange in color, but sometimes artificially colored – was supposably produced by pairing an Amphilophus Citrinellus with a smaller Cichlid of Central America.
Another hybrid is the Flower Horn, which is bred mainly in Asia. These very beautiful fish are only possible because of the fact that most of Central America’s cichlids are easy to cross breed. The Midas Cichlid gave the Flower Horn the Vieja Synspillum as well as the big frontal hump.
