Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Convict cichlid is a fish species from the family Cichlidae, native to Central America, also known as the zebra cichlid.Convict cichlids are popular aquarium fish and have also been the subject of numerous studies on fish behaviour.Albert G nther originally described the species in 1867 after Frederick DuCane Godman and Osbert Salvin collected specimens in Central America.In 2007, the species was moved from the genus Archocentrus to a new genus, Amatitlania based on Juan Schmitter-Soto's study of Archocentus species.However, a 2008 study led by Oldrich Rican proposed moving the species in Cryptoheros and Amatitlania, including Amatitlania nigrofasciata into the genus Hypsophrys.show more
