The Green Terror is a great addition to any aquarium given its vibrant colors and impressive size. It is important to ensure that the aquarium is large enough to accommodate an adult Green Terror, at least 50 gallons. Additionally, the aquarium should feature a sandy bottom, rock work, and live plants that are planted in pots. These features will provide the necessary hiding spots for the Green Terror. Furthermore, the Green Terror is usually peaceful with other fish of similar size but may become more territorial as it matures. Therefore, it is important to keep a close eye on its behavior in the aquarium. Lastly, it is essential to provide adequate space for the Green Terror to swim, as it is a very active species.
The Green Terror is a highly sought after fish with a calm and friendly temperament. Its hardiness and ease of breeding make it a great choice for the home aquarium. It is also known for its beautiful coloration and pattern. With proper care and maintenance, the Green Terror can be a rewarding addition to any aquarium. To ensure success, it’s important to provide a well-filtered tank with plenty of hiding places and a pH of 6.5-7.5. They will spawn about every two weeks if the young are removed from the aquarium and the female will take the bigger role in raising the fry. Furthermore, the Green Terror will lay the eggs on a cleaned, flat rock, making it relatively easy to breed in captivity.
The Green Terror is an omnivorous fish that will eat most prepared and frozen foods, including freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and ocean plankton, as well as flake food and Cichlid pellets.
