Cichlid Varieties


Many people new to cichlids have seen a specimen or two in the local pet shop; even if they dont know it! Many popular fish are in fact cichlids though they may look nothing alike. Some examples are Discus fish and Oscar cichlids. These fish are common in the fish trade but have very distinctive appearances, behaviors, food preferences and keeping requirements.

Why People Choose Cichlids


The varied nature of cichlids means their are many reasons why people choose them above other fish. The two most common reasons are their appearance and behavior.

From shiny green metallic Discus to striped stocky Convicts there is a cichlid look to suit everyones aesthetic preference. Almost every color imaginable is expressed by one cichlid or another and these can even vary from juvenile to the adult male or female. The body shapes are also widely different with traditional fish profiles and those not so widely seen in aquariums.

Looks can be deceiving and every cichlid has its own temperament. While some will fight any opposing fish to the death, others will go to great lengths to stay out of harms way.
