Electric Blue Acara

The fish currently for sale are in the 1.25"-2.5" range.

Pictures are not of the exact one you will receive but they are my pictures from my stock.

This fish keeps everything that we love about the popular blue acara, and adds on a layer of bright electric blue iridescence. This offsets the red/orange fin edges very nicely and makes for a stunning designer fish.

These are wonderful fish for beginners and advanced hobbyists alike because they are hardy, peaceful (for a cichlid), and don't get too big. They are eating eagerly on everything I put in the tank...including flakes, pellets, algae wafers, Repashy, frozen foods, and live foods.
