    They are cichilds
    They are African cichilds

    :;laughing cheater!!!!!! lol
    although from africa and considered "african cichlid" they are not in the same catagory as african cichlids..they are more a community type fish where the water parimeters need to be consistant, but not higher ph like most africans...the only time they are usually meanies (unlike the norm for african cichlids) is breeding time...

    They aren't very colorful right now, they went on a 2 and 1/2 hour car trip. I went to a store in springfield missouri called Cichild and salts tropical fish.

    They are African riverine cichlids and share more similarities in terms of size and temperament with SA dwarfs rather than African Rift Lake cichlids. Nice pickups, they should be fun to keep! :)
