Overview
Tank raised by Florida fish farmer or hobbyist MALAWI CICHLIDS SOLD ON THIS SITE ARE GENERALLY 1.25 INCHES TO 2.25 INCHES IN LENGTH AND ARE SOLD AS UNSEXED JUVENILES. DIFFERENT SIZES WILL BE DESIGNATED IN THE SIZE CHART BELOW. Small: 1 inch Regular: 1.25 -2.25 inches Medium: 2.5 - 3.5 inches Large: 4-6 inches If you are stocking a new tank or a tank with cichlids under 3 inches you will be safe with small , and regular sizes. If you are stocking a tank that has existing cichlids that are over 3 inches you should only choose regular, or medium sizes. Most cichlids sold in pet stores are 2 -2.5 inches in size. Our fish are sold smaller because of the demand for these fish and because they ship better at smaller sizes. Our customers have accepted this due to the rarity of the fish offered on our website compared to many of the retail stores. These fish grow so fast, the initial size is less relevant to the quality of genetics and rarity of species. Our regular sized fish will measure between the width of a quarter and the width of a $.50 cent piece. The dynamics of the size is manifested when you know that a 2 inch fish will appear to be 3-4 times the mass of a 1.25 inch fish, since it is not just longer but deeper and thicker and the color is often more robust.

Copadichromis (Otopharynx) Decorus Nkete is a fairly new fish to the hobby . Like most Copadichromis is a good community tank fish for a cichlid tank 55 gallons or more . The Decorus Nkete male is silver /blue with a purple hue and some yellow on the belly with yellow fins and tail. the female are the typical nondescript color silver, though shows some yellow on the tail. They are a relatively peaceful cichlid and is a good choice for a beginner .

The male maximum size is approximately 6 inches.

We have fed our cichlids the current All Purpose Fish Food Formula in our Florida Facility for over a year. Our cichlids are noticeably more active, grow quicker, have improved color, and we have all but eliminated bloat in even the most sensitive species, including tropheus. We have fed it to New World and African cichlids, assorted Livebearers, Discus, Loaches, Catfish, Danios, Tetras, Australian Rainbows, and virtually any fish that will eat a prepared food.
