Cichlids are great fish for anyone looking to take up the aquarium hobby. They thrive in fresh water and are easy to feed, which immediately makes everything else that much simpler. Also known as angelfish, cichlids have been popular in aquaria since 1945.
Most of those in captivity come from the Amazon basin, though hybrids are also popular. Take yours with you as you move up from the fishbowl to the aquarium.
