Dicrossus is a small genus of South American dwarf cichlids, often known as checkerboard cichlids in the aquarium hobby. Two species (maculatus, filamentosus) have been known to science for many years, and a third (gladicauda) since 2008. Now two further species have been described.

German ichthyologist Dr Uwe Römer and his colleagues have published a paper scientifically describing the two new species, both known to science and hobbyists for at least 20 years under a variety of provisional names.

The first species now named Dicrossus foirni may be familiar as Dicrossus sp. “Peru”, D. sp. “Rotflossen”, D. sp. “Rio Negro”, or D. sp. “Doppelfleck”. It originates from the middle and upper Rio Negro drainage (not Peru!), exclusively in left-bank (northern) tributaries of the main river upstream of its confluence with the Rio Branco. The female is pictured below.

The name foirni is based on the acronym FOIRN for the Federação das Organizações Indígenas do Rio Negro, a non-govermental organisation that looks after the interests of indigenous peoples in Brazil. The authors thus acknowledge FOIRN repeatedly giving permission to travel on tribal lands in the middle and upper Rio Negro basin, as well as for carrying out observations on wildlife, especially insects and fish, in these areas.

The species has been found in clear, black, and white water, sometimes in the company of its congener D. filamentosus as well as other dwarf cichlids (Apistogramma gibbiceps, A. paucisquamis, A. pertensis), and the Cardinal Tetra, Paracheirodon axelrodi.

Kory that's an excellent idea for the winning photo to have a description of the fish in the final win thread. Gets people to know what others are keeping and how to care for them. All I can say is "GROOVY"
