DEFINITELY ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND GOOD LOOKING FISH I'VE EVER KEPT. I STUMBLED ACROSS THESE JEWELS OF THE RIFT LAKE BY ACCIDENT AND WONDERED HOW THEY HAD ELUDED ME ALL THESE YEARS.

THIS IS A JUVENILE MALE PROTOMELAS SPILONATUS "MARA ROCKS" OR COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE "SULPHURHEAD" HAP. THESE FISH A REAL STUNNERS AND THE VIBRANT BLAZE THEY HAVE STANDS OUT SO WELL AMONGST ALL THE BEAUTIFUL COLOUR IN AN AFRICAN CICHLID SHOW TANK. I FIND AFTER A WATER CHANGE, WHEN THE WATER IS PRISTINE AND CRYSTAL CLEAR, THESE FISH REALLY GLOW. THIS AMAZING FISH IS A REAL SLEEPER IN THE HOBBY AND THEIR GROWING POPULARITY CAN ONLY BE A BENEFIT TO EAGER HOBBYISTS.

Besides the many colorful cichlids from the African lakes, there are others highly prized for patterning and other unique characteristics. These includeas seen in the popular genus, featherfins, goby cichlids, sarding cichlids, and shelldwellers to name a few.Like their South American counterparts, there are also some African Cichlids that reach an impressive size, making great specimens for a large show tank. Yet here too there are a few species are not really suitable for the home aquarium due to size. The , which reaches up to 36" (90 cm), is a good example of too big.For more in-depth info see: Most African Cichlids available in the hobby have a mix of fascinating characteristics and are a delight to keep.

This is the first tank update for one of my four aquarium setups. This is a 55 gallon mixed African Cichlid Freshwater/Brackish setup that has been running now for ~3 years. Of course over this time span cichlids have both came and went, not due to death, but because Cichlids have such a personality to them that, just like humans, sometimes just clash and don't get along well. So with that said here is week 162 of my 55 gallon tank, it is a little messy at the moment because I'm updating the interior of it.As an aquarist of some long standing (many, many years), there have always been in my aquariums. And, while I have a hard time explaining to non-fish people the fascination of fish, I have no problem telling already initiated fish people (hobbyists) why I enjoy keeping cichlids. In one word: behavior. Members of the family Cichlidae are among the most “intelligent” and behaviorally advanced of our freshwater aquarium fishes. They hold and defend territories, and they go through elaborate courtship rituals and then guard and rear their eggs and offspring.
