Beautiful, Colorful and Aggressive Fishes
African Cichlids are intelligent, hardy fish perfect for all fish owners. These tropical fishes that were originally from Africa, where they are found in lakes and rivers. Cichlids come in an extensive range of colors, such as red, orange, yellow, blue, and black. They also come in different patterns, such as striped and spotted.
Cichlids can grow to up to 20cm long and can live for 5-8 years and are very disease-resistant. African Cichlids are aggressive and territorial and to prevent any unwanted deaths, keep them away from other fish species. If you keep ten or more other African Cichlids together, provide them with plenty of places to hide.
Feed these fish with Cichlid pellets or flakes. Provide them with frozen foods such as vegetables, shrimp, and bloodworms as an extra. Feed as much food as the fish will finish eating in 3 minutes, and do this twice a day.
African Cichlids need a tank temperature of 23-28 degrees Celsius and a water PH level of 7.6 to 8.4 for them to survive. You should add African Balance found in our store to bring up the PH if it is below this. A third of the tank’s water needs to be changed every 1 to 2 weeks, and the gravel cleaned and add new water with Water Conditioner and Chlorine Neutral. This makes sure there are no chemicals in the fresh water that can hurt your fish.
