With many different shapes, cichlids can range from the disk-like forms of the popular Angelfish and Discus to the cylindrical bodied forms of the sporty African cichlids. They are very active and intriguing freshwater fish. Many are highly colorful, especially those from the African lakes, while others reach an impressive size and are great specimens for a large show tank.

Is it common to have a saltwater cichlid?

I am guessing shobhita didn't realize this was the saltwater forum. To my knowledge (limited!) there is no such thing as a saltwater cichlid
