The pearl cichlid (Geophagus brasiliensis) is a freshwater fish species, a member of the South American Cichlid family.

Geophagus brasiliens is main body colour can be anything from pale light brown to dark blue almost purple; their colours change with moods and during mating sessions. The pearl cichlid has one dark spot which may or may not be visible on its body, located towards its tail, it also may display several black bands running top to bottom down its body. Its markings, which cover its body, are bright blue speckles which shine bright in a healthy fish; they have red fins which may have blueish tones and be tipped in black; but again these colours may change, brighten or fade depending on the mood. They can grow quite large, with males reaching just over a foot and females generally a little smaller. In a group they will usually pair up once they are around 2–3 inches; at this time they can be quite aggressive to other fish, defending their territory and breeding space.
