Sandy’s carries both African and South American cichlids. African cichlids come from Lakes Malawi, Victoria, Tanganyika, and Edwards in Africa. They include peacocks, venustus, haps, frontosa, mbunas, and more. African cichlids are typically mouth-brooders, which means that they keep their fry in their mouths for an extended period of time.

South American cichlids are more varied in terms of behavior. They include fish such as oscars, red devils, severs, convicts, blood parrots, flower horns, and more. Sandy’s also carries more peaceful South Americans, such as rams and angelfish.

Cichlids are some of the most territorial fish around, and keeping them together in an aquarium successfully can be quite a challenge. That’s where we come in! Come in today to find out how you can keep these big, beautiful fish happy and healthy.
