AFRICAN CICHLIDS

AFRICAN CICHLIDS ARE FAST BECOMING A FAVORITE AMONG HOBBYISTS. THEY ORIGINATE FROM LAKES IN AFRICA THOUGH MANY SPECIES ARE CAPTIVE BRED. AN AFRICAN CICHLID SYSTEM SHOULD INCLUDE BUT NOT BE LIMITED TO A GOOD FILTRATION SYSTEM, HEATER, AERATION, STRONG WATER CURRENT AND VERY SPECIFIC WATER PARAMETERS. GENEROUS ROCK WORK AND CAVES WILL PROVIDE COVER AS THESE FISH TEND TO BE TERRITORIAL AND AGGRESSIVE. A PROPER DIET AND MAINTENANCE PROGRAM WILL KEEP YOUR AFRICAN CICHLIDS IN TOP CONDITION FOR YEARS TO COME. SOME SPECIES ARE EASILY BRED IN HOME AQUARIUMS. WITH UNIQUE PERSONALITIES AND VIBRANT COLORS, AFRICAN CICHLIDS WILL SOON BECOME MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY. RARE SPECIES ARE OUR SPECIALTY .
