Overview

The price for these is PER FISH. 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.

The price for these is PER FISH.

The Prestige, like the Standard assortment offers a wide variety of Malawi species, most which are mbuna. These mbunas are fish not often found a pet stores and if so not at these prices. Although a few species overlap the Standard mix the majority are unique to the prestige assortment. this makes combining the Prestige and standard assortment a great idea for increasing the number of available species in your tank.

These fish are PRICED PER FISH and are usually bought in numbers of 10 or more. These fish are priced per fish so order the number you want. You will be charged the price of the fish times the number in the package requested minus a volume discount. Typical orders start with 10 fish and can be combined with other selections. Because cichlids do better in high density environments we recommend crowding the tank to reduce aggression and increase the beauty of the tank. You must feed responsibly do regular water changes and have a robust filter system to created this type of display.
