For those South American cichlid enthusiasts out there, especially those fond of eartheaters, John Carlin at Fincasters recently posted a new episode where he interviews Imperial Tropical’s Mike Drawdy about Gymnogeophagus gymnogenys. This is a beautiful substrate spawning, mouth-brooding cichlid found in Uruguay, parts of Argentina, and parts of southern Brazil. It’s a great interview and very informative, especially for hobbyists unfamiliar with the species. You can view it here. The specimens Mike has on display in the video differ in color from the above, but that’s not uncommon.

If you want to learn more about Imperial Tropicals and Fincasters, see the interviews I did with Mike and John, respectively: Mike Drawdy interview, John Carlin interview. I would also encourage you to visit their respective websites.
