Lake Malawi Cichlids

I found this "blog" of sorts run by an MiT grad/I think professor now.Part of it is about her cichlids and how she cares for them. I've seen a few posts about "african cichlids" and I had some questions of my own as well so I thought I'd share.

I can't discount the information, so much as point out the HUGE amount of information that is missing. One huge glaring issue would be the failure to mention the difference between Mbunas and Habs and the importance for newbies not to mix them. Her substrate advice is missing a few key words like "sand." Her feeding advice is plain contradictory to everything else I've read. It may work for her, but under/over feeding is linked to aggression She also glossed over the importance of overstocking to minimize aggression. Neat page, but I'd definitely see out other sources.
