Comments: These are fabulous fish with vibrant colors. There are species of Dwarf Cichlids in South America, West Africa, and in Lake Tanganyika in East Africa, plus one species in Asia.

Origin: Rams are Dwarf Cichlids whose ancestors lived in Colombia and Venezuela in the northern part of South America.

Kribensis are Dwarf Cichlids whose ancestors lived in West Africa. Brichardi and Julies had ancestors, who lived in Lake Tanganyika in East Africa.

Maximum Size: Most species grow to least 2" long but at most 4" long.

Behaviors: Dwarf cichlids are usually not aggressive fish, but when they're preparing to spawn, spawning, and guarding their babies, they do become more aggressive.

Males often quarrel with each other. Unless the aquarium is quite large, it's probably best to have only one male of each species per aquarium.

Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include: Tetras like Serpaes and Lemon Tetras, Danios, Rainbowfish, Corydoras Catfish, and a smaller Plecostomus species.

Click here to read more about compatible groups of pet fish.

Temperature: Dwarf Cichlids live best from about 75 to 80-degrees F. with 78 being perhaps ideal.

Click here to learn about aquarium temperature, aquarium thermometers, and aquarium heaters.

Feeding: smaller size Premium Fish Food Pellets.

Click here to learn more about and shop online for premium fish foods.

Water Conditions: These fish can adapt to most types of water, and so as usual it's best not to try to change the pH or hardness of the water in your aquarium.

Click here for a lot more information about aquarium water conditions.

Aquarium Size: a few of these Dwarf Cichlids can live in a very small aquarium. Perhaps 15-gallons is the minimum.

But like most aquarium fish they'll enjoy a larger aquarium. So we recommend at least a 30-gallon aquarium, and a 60-gallon aquarium is probably best. 

Decor: Dwarf Cichlids do not need gravel, and a layer of gravel more than 1/4" thick will usually fill with bits of uneaten food that will contaminate the water.

Click here for more about aquarium gravel.  

Live plants are beautiful and improve the water quality, and most Dwarf Cichlids love living among live plants.

Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel Filters are highly recommended. A 15-gallon aquarium needs a Penguin 100B or 150B.

A 30-gallon aquarium needs a Penguin 200B or 350B, and a 60-gallon aquarium does best with two Penguin 350B Filters. Click here to learn more about aquarium filters.

The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range.

Click here to learn more about using Lava Rocks in aquariums.

Life Span: Dwarf Cichlids can live for several years. Keep the water conditions excellent and feed them premium foods, and they will most likely breed and produce the next generation of fish for your aquarium.

Gender: It's difficult to tell males from females, when they are very small, but as they mature the male will color up and grow longer fins.

As the females fill with eggs, they become rounder in the abdomen.

Breeding: Some Dwarf Cichlids, like Rams, females like to lay their eggs on flat rocks on the bottom of the aquarium.

The male fertilizes and then both parents work hard to protect their eggs from other tankmates. 

Other Dwarf Cichlids, like Kribensis and Tanganyikan Dwarfs like to breed in a cave.

Click here for a lot more about breeding various tropical fish in aquariums.

Popularity: These fish are very popular in the aquarium hobby.

Names: There are several Genuses/Geni of these Dwarf Cichlids, including Mikrogeophagus and Apistogramma in South America, plus Julidochromis, Neolamprologus, and Pelvicachromis in Africa.

We hope you've enjoyed reading these comments.
