AFRICAN CICHLID TANK
 

AFRICAN CICHLID TANK

The absence of plants in an African Cichlid tank can be compensated by a rocky decor that provides the fish with shelters and hiding places; polyurethane and polystyrene can also prove very effective for fulfilling the same purpose.

For Lake Tanganyika, you can introduce the Cyprinodontid Lamprichthys tanganicanus or a species of Lamprologus, which takes refuge in a gastropod shell. For Lake Malawi, you can add species of the Haplochromis genus. These reproduce through mouth brooding, ensuring that the hobbyist can look forward to a fascinating spectacle once he or she has spotted a female with her mouth swollen by eggs.
