There are over 1,200 species of cichlids, most of which originate in Central and South America and Africa. Cichlids are one of the most popular freshwater aquarium fish. They are known for their interesting behaviors, extroverted personalities and pleasing appearances. South American cichlids represent a very diverse group of fish that are well represented in the aquarium hobby. Some of these cichlids work very well in peaceful community tanks, others will mix well with many of the Central American cichlids, and still others will only really thrive in a single species tank. It is important that you research the specific needs and behaviors of the fish you are interested in adding to your aquarium beforehand.
