Red Wolf Cichlids (Parachromis dovii) are fairly new to the hobby and are only starting to circulate. The genetics are somewhat unknown, but it appears as though they change from pale white to orange-red as they age. This change is not guaranteed however. Mature males will have red spots.
This species gets very large when mature and should not be housed in a tank smaller than 100 gallons. These fish typically act very aggressively towards tank mates, especially when breeding.
