African cichlids are a beautiful and interesting alternative to saltwater reef tanks. They are native in the three rift Great Lakes Malawi, Tanganyika , Victoria and the rivers of the Congo . African cichlids are secondary freshwater fish, which means their ancestors were saltwater fish that moved inland via the Congo, Limpopo, Zambezi, Malaragasi and other rivers. As the river waters became trapped in the Rift Valley, the saltwater river fish became freshwater lake fish. The cichlids evolved to live in every environment of the Great Lakes, including along rocky beaches, in deep sea beds and in warmer, shallow waters. The evolution necessities created thousands of variants that are still being discovered today. The hobbyist will never run out of new species to try in the aquarium with African cichlids . This reason alone is the cause of there continuing popularity.
