    I know, no freshwater fish will have the same colors as a saltwater fish, but i've heard some african cichlids, come kind of close...What african cichlids have the best, brightest, most beautiful colors?

    Look at Peacock cichlids, or the Aulonocara genus, some of them come pretty close.

    Most of them have amazing colors even mbunas can get amazing colors if feed a high quality food. Some haps come in amazing colors besides peacocks.

    That's a SA cichlid, not an African.

    How about Victorian cichlids raptorsvt79? Take a look at this link:
