What's your FAVOURITE Cichlid?

I'm really starting to like cichlids, so just out of curiosity, what's your FAVOURITE type of Cichlid? I think mine is an electric yellow, though I like them all at the moment

You should check out my Pics and Albums!


Please leave a comment on them too


Thankyou!

Oscars are my favourite. Had 3 of them for 10 years in a 90 Gallon and they were amazing. Their only tank mates were a pleco and 2 Bala Sharks.

German Blue Rams

Clearly, I am partial to the non-aggressive cichlid breed that stays small, German Blue, Electric Blue and Gold Rams. I love them because if you ever decide you want to add different types of species to your tank you will be okay. The african cichlids are known to be aggressive and if you ever get bored with your mix there isn't much you can do. I also found that the rams have a great personalities that will win your heart.

That's just my take! Good luck!

I too am a lover of Oscars. But Oscars are tied with Blood Red Parrots for my faves...but since BRP are man-made hybrids I dont know if you consider them as an option for a fave.

If I had the room for a tank big enough for either, I would have them!! Looking to get into blue rams in the next year or two.

*They call me, Amanda*
Tank 1: (29 gal planted) empty
Tank 2: (15 gal) empty

I thought your pH was too high... I mean buffers would work but a naturaly low pH is nice

Severum. They are shy to begin with but when they get to know you, they are great wet pets. My two are always there to greet me and my kids, but they run away from strangers. lol
