The Gold Dust Eartheater, also known as Geophagus sp. Alto Sinu, requires a sandy substrate due to its earth-eating behavior. This Colombian species, widely bred in farms globally, boasts stunning scale patterns with blue iridescence overlaying a golden body, earning it the nickname "Gold Dust." Regarded as one of the most aesthetically pleasing Geophagus varieties in the hobby, it shares behavioral traits and a similar maximum size with the Red Head Tapajos, making it an appealing choice as a tankmate for medium-sized cichlids and characins.
