Electric Blue Acara

Andinoacara pulcher


For many years, the Electric Blue Acara has been an extremely popular choice for those with a South American cichlid aquarium. Not only is the fish blessed with absolutely beautiful looks, but the Blue Acara is also one of the more peaceful of the cichlids, making it a good choice for a community tank of similar-sized, amenable species.


Electric Blue Acaras are quite large fish that generally inhabit bodies of water where the flow is relatively strong. So, you’ll need a canister filter or extra powerheads to help produce a powerful enough circulation.


You can find Electric Blue Acaras at some good local fish stores, depending on where you live. These fish are also widely available through online dealers, and you’ll expect to pay between $6 and $15 for a specimen, depending on its age and size.
