The Surinamensis Geophagus, also known as the Redstripe Eartheater, the Mother-of-Pearl Eartheater, and the Opalescent Eartheater, has a long nose with eyes set high on the head and amber in color. Some Surinamensis Geophagus have a gray-black blotch, resembling an ink smudge, on their sides. The background color is olive-green to pearl gray, with iridescent blue-green stripes on its sides and small iridescent blue spots on its fins, with the exception of the pectoral fins. Wild Surinamensis Geophagus exhibit deep red lateral stripes, which fade in an aquarium.

The Surinamensis Geophagus requires a tank of 40 gallons or larger with a sandy bottom and flat rocks. The rear of the tank should have caves made from stones and roots, and the edges of the tank should be decorated with hardy, potted plants. It is a confirmed burrower, and care should be taken when creating the caves, so that they do not collapse. The Surinamensis Geophagus can be kept in tanks with large catfish as tank mates.
