Vieja is a genus of cichlid fish from the Pacific slope of Central America and Mexico. The majority of the species are freshwater fish found in stagnant or slow-moving waters of southern Mexico to El Salvador.
They are high-bodied cichlids that reach lengths of up to 17–35 cm (6.7–13.8 in) depending on the exact species. Historically, Vieja was included in Cichlasoma.
Sand substrate, drift wood and rocks are suitable decorations, although due to their vegetarian tendencies, plants are not a good idea, unless you want to include them in the menu.
Vieja breidohri Feeding is not a problem; they are eager eaters of any regular fish food offered, although I always tried to give them a good deal of vegetable matter, including soft fruits. Growth is fast if the space is provided and regular water changes of 50% or more of the water are done frequently; as frequently as possible is a good rule. Vieja breidohri is not a terribly aggressive cichlid and rarely bothers any other fish that cannot be eaten. They do fine in groups in the aquarium.
V. breidohri is an easy fish to keep in aquarium.
A very interesting, colourful addition to a central/north American cichlid tank.
