What Is a Red Devil Cichlid?

A red devil cichlid is a large and aggressive cichlid fish native to Central America. It is sometimes referred to as a Lemon cichlid and a Midas cichlid. Because the fish originates where Spanish is the native language, it is also called "Mojarra rayada."

A red devil cichlid can grow to be up to a foot long. They should not be placed in a tank with smaller fish due to their size and aggressive nature. However, keeping red devil cichlid fish with other cichlids native to Central America and South America is acceptable as long as all the fish are around the same size..
