CICHLIDS  (sick-lids)

Those looking to add color to an aquarium need to look no further than African cichlids.

Their bright colors and social lifestyle makes them an ideal way to liven up a tank.

These are an incredibly diverse group of fish. Each species has its own pattern and coloration, so there is one to suit everybody.

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.

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.

CORY CATFISH

Often found in shoals in large community tanks, they are beautiful additions that bring personality to the lower levels of the tank.

Cory catfish are petite: between one and four inches in length. Because they are small and graze at the bottom of the tank, they don’t get in the way of quicker, larger fish in other regions. They are not aggressive and pose no threat to smaller fish. Cory catfish suck up food with their mouths and will not bite other fish intentionally or by accident. They are social in nature and are happiest when kept with at least three members of the same species.

GLO FISH
