|Banded Cichlid (H. severus)|
Most commonly encountered in the aquarium trade is the Severum, or Banded cichlid, H. severus, available commercially in its gold coloration as well as the wild-type green.

Fish belonging to the genus Heros are distinguishable by their bulbous "Dell 'Abate" lips and sedentary demeanor, especially after eating.
