Choosing The Appropriate Aquarium -
The next thing to consider is the tank itself. When choosing the size and shape of the aquarium, it is important to remember the larger the capacity and the more surface area (length and width), the greater the selection of Cichlids you have to choose from. In addition, you are less likely to experience losses due to aggression. Related to this, you should also "over filter" a Cichlid tank in most instances. This is because they are usually kept in conditions which require it. More on this later.
