South American Cichlids

South American cichlids are a popular choice for community tanks because they are typically the least aggressive in the cichlid family.

These fish come from a variety of different habitats, so they can be found in a range of water conditions. This adaptability means that they can be kept in a variety of tank setups.

Most species typically reach a size of four to six inches, making them an ideal size for most home aquariums. When choosing South American cichlids for your tank, it’s important to take into account the different personalities and behaviors of each species.

Some South American cichlids are more aggressive than others, so it’s important to do your research before adding them to your tank. South American cichlids are schooling fish, so it’s best to keep at least six of them in order to create a natural and comfortable environment.
