Populating your first cichlid aquarium with these African natives can be quite challenging since they are typically more aggressive than their South American counterparts.
However, if you’re an old hand at keeping Cichlids and want something to advance your fish-keeping knowledge, African Cichlids could be just the thing for you.
African Cichlids come in a stunning array of colors and sizes, so there’s fish to suit every aquarist’s tastes – from tiny shell-dwellers to medium-sized Mbuna to large haps.
They can be kept in either community tanks or single-species setups, depending on the species chosen and the tank size available. With proper research and preparation, African Cichlids can easily be kept as beautiful living decorations in any home aquarium.
