It depends on the species, but most should live for around 8 years in an aquarium.

Typical Behavior
They are very active fish. Whenever they sense movement outside of the tank, they will follow it in the hope that they are about to be fed.

This behavior can make you feel like you’re underfeeding them since they’re always looking for food. Don’t let this trick you into overfeeding them as they would happily keep eating well beyond what they need.

Their active lifestyle makes them good swimmers, to the point where they can jump out of the tank; however, they probably won’t do this unless they get spooked or provoked.

Another thing to consider is their aggression. They can be territorial at times, especially when mating, which can lead to the death of weaker fish in the tank. To try to reduce fights, make sure that there are plenty of hiding places in your tank. This gives your fish somewhere to escape and also gives them a territory to claim.

During the search for food they may dig into the substrate or dig up decorations in the tank. This shouldn’t cause too many problems, as long as anything you place in the tank is well secured in the substrate.

Digging isn’t just for scavenging, some species use it as a hunting strategy. Livingston’s cichlid (Nimbochromis livingstonii) burrows slightly into the sediment and plays dead, until an unsuspecting prey passes by.

Many of these cichlid species display unique behaviors.
