Honduran Red Point Description: These fish should be cared for in the same way as their close cousins Cryptoheros nanoluteus and Cryptoheros sajica. These fish are somewhat territorial but not overly aggressive. They should be kept with other small to medium sized cichlids of similar temperament or most community fish that will grow to at least 2". This is a gorgeous cichlid that is relatively easy to care for. They are relatively peaceful for cichlids. They can safely breed with other fish in a larger tank so long as they have plenty of territory and any non-cichlid fish in the tank stay more towards the surface. There are breeding farms that have crossed the Honduran Red Point to regular convicts, and the resulting fry have been sold off as "Blue Convicts." So, be careful when purchasing anything simply labelled as "Blue Convicts"
