South American or African cichlids?

Post by Rlony » Tue May 07, 2019 6:39 am

I don't have a big tank just a little 15 gallon long in the kitchen but I figured I give a few African cichlids a go.. Not sure I dig them as much as I do the south american cichlids.. I had all kinds of south and central american cichlids and found them more personable..
Now I am thinking maybe I should trade the Africans in..
The Maingano's I have are very secretive and don't do much unless I am 8 -10 ft from the tank..
Any thoughts from other keepers on that?

Lots very suitable dwarf South American Apistogramma cichlids for your 15 gallon tank
From Central America there is the Nanoluteus ... anoluteus/
Blue Eyed cichlid

There are some other dwarfs from African Lake Tanganyika that are shell dwellers ... l-dwellers
