This is a particularly beautiful Central Americna cichlid called Parachromis Motaguense. What makes it particularly nice is the collection locale. I brought this fish back from Honduras two years ago. The fish caught in the Rio Blanco are noted for their lovely coloration and pattern. Fully grown, the male will be a stunning 14". Right now he is a little over half that. Even at this small size they are prolific breeders as noted by the tiny fry swimming near the parents. The Cichlid species as a whole are very good parents who will spend a month protecting them from predators...as you might imagine with the set of teeth on the male, From a photographic stand point, they were shot with a Nikon D200 with Nikkor 105mm Micro lens with vibration reduction. It was lit with a single flash placed above the tank and a 40W flourescent to "fill in some of the blanks". I used a small reflector to bounce bach some light as well.
