Lake Malawi Cichlids!

These are the best fish next to Salt water in my opinion. Big personality, very territorial and colorful as can be.

If you don't plan on getting 75- 100 gallon tank then stick to the Dwarfs, biggest they get is 4"-4.5" inches.

The longer the tank the better (4-6 Feet), that's how they separate from bully aggression. And you also need LOTS of filtration 10x gph. The purpose of this is to over stock with fish to even out the aggression, this way no fish gets singled out. But in return comes with a heavy bio load.

Check my Tank out, its a 55g (4 feet long) tank with 20 Young Lake Malawi Cichlids mostly dwarfs. I have an 80 gallon in storage waiting for me when I move in few months which I'll be transferring them over to. I only order fish online because I can choose any fish I want vs getting what the store has.
