Caring for Your New African Cichlids

African cichlids are tough fish. They require hard and alkaline water, which describes the water conditions that many hobbyists have. A constant temperature is required, but as long as that temperature is between 20 to 26 degrees Celsius, these fish will be fine. They will eat absolutely anything, although the fare designed for them is best, supplemented with some fresh greens, and maybe a piece of raw fish occasionally. 

Their tank should have lots of rock, driftwood and coral skeletons in it, providing plenty of hiding places. And — unusual to say — they do better when they are crowded. Want to learn more about these fascinating creatures? Call Evalife Aquarium today!
