African Riverine

Africa is home to more cichlids than just the ones from the Rift Lakes. They can be divided into many areas, but it's much simpler to refer to them as African riverine. For the most part, they can be kept in similar conditions (temperature and ph). The only differences is in what sort of setup you will need for their tank (size and aquascaping). Most of these fish will tolerate temperatures from 21-27°C(70-80°F) .

African riverine cichlids I currently keep:

Pelvicachromis taeniatus 'Dehane'

Formerly kept:

Hemichromis cristatus Nanochromis parilus (Congo Dwarf Cichlid)
Pelvicachromis pulcher (kribs)
Anomalochromis thomasi (African Butterfly)
Pseudocrenilabrus nicholsi Chromidotilapia guentheri
