An attractive, relatively peaceful medium-growing cichlid, the Peru Festivum or Flag Cichlid is found throughout the Nanay and Itaya rivers in the Peruvian Amazon. Like most of its relatives in the genus Mesonauta, they tend to be found close to the water’s surface in slower-moving areas with lots of overhanging vegetation and often live alongside Angels. In the wild, a large amount of their diet is made up of fruit and nuts that fall into the water from overhanging trees but will accept almost any prepared or frozen foods in the aquarium.
