Abstract: The Mayan cichlid (Cichlasoma �Nandopsis' urophthalmus) is an invasive species that has successfully established itself throughout southern Florida. In the past few years, several populations have successfully expanded their range to higher latitudes. An experiment was conducted in an effort to predict the limits of their northern range expansion by testing the lower limits of temperature tolerance for this fish. It was determined that the critical thermal minimum for the Mayan cichlid was 9�C. Based on these finding and average Florida stream temperatures, the potential range limits for this species are suggested. Also presented is a review of the effects of temperature on teleost physiology and the adaptations necessary for dealing with temperature change. This information provides insight into how these factors limit range expansion.
