Peacock Cichlid

African Cichlids are some of the most colourful and attractive freshwater fish you can keep in a home aquarium.

Best suited to the more experienced fishkeeper, African Cichlids tend to be bigger and more aggressive than normal community fish.

Nearly all African cichlids live in one of three great lakes in East Africa: Lake Malawi, Lake Victoria and Lake Tanganyika. The most popular species for home aquariums are from Lake Malawi.
