Amatitlania nanolutea, known as Gold Convict among the Aqarium Hobby is a rather recent introduction, first identifed by Allgayer in 1994.
This fish is found on the Atlantic side of the continent in the Guarumo River basin, Panamá.
Since it naturally inhabits pristine environments water quality is of the utmost importance, and the fish should never be introduced to a biologically immature aquarium
Not fussy and will accept most foods. Live and frozen bloodworm, Artemia, Mysis, etc., should form a good proportion of the diet, though good quality dried foods may also be used.
It’s important to ensure the fish receive some vegetable matter in the form of proprietary products with added Spirulina or similar, while high-protein foods are best avoided.
Not as aggressive as some others in the genus, though territorial when breeding.
