Cichlasoma salvini (Trichromis salvini according to some ichthyologists), commonly known as the Salvin, Tricolour, or Salvin's Cichlid. These beautiful Central American cichlids are related to Firemouths (Genus Thorichthys) but have a bit more attitude. With a yellow base colour, bold dark stripes and splashes of metallic blue and scarlet they are certainly an eye-catching fish. While they are known to have a bit of an attitude toward other cichlids, they usual cohabitate fine with robust and quick schooling fish. As they only reach about 5-6" maximum, they are perfect if you are looking for all the colour and personality of CA Cichlids, without the large size.
