Cichilds

The Cichlid family encompasses a wide range of popular tropical species. Cichlids vary greatly in shape, size, color, breeding habits and temperament. The more popular varieties include the Oscar and Jack Dempsey, as well as smaller cichlids such as Rams and Apistrogrammas. Cichlids are territorial and need room to stake out their space in the tank. Many of the African Rift Lake cichlids prefer rocks, caves, and stony hiding places in their tank. Some cichlids will uproot plants so plan on a deep gravel bed. Many cichlids such as the Convicts will burrow into the gravel during breeding times. Rift Lake cichlids require hard , alkaline water. American cichlids prefer softer less alkaline water.
