African Cichlids

African Cichlids can be aggressive to smaller Asian and South American species. However, they are the most colorful freshwater fish imaginable! We sell these fish as small (around 1”), medium (around 2”), and large (around 3.5”).

Some fish may be kept with African cichlids, including eels, plecos, larger tetras and barbs.
