Mbuna cichlids for sale and Lake Malawi cichlids list of genera

african cichlid care
Mbuna is a common name representing a large colorful group of African cichlids from Lake Malawi. The term mbuna translates to mean “rockfish” in the language used by the Tonga people of Malawi Africa, a term which is used in the cichlid community as well. Many of the mbuna cichlids thrive along the piles of rocks and along the rocky shores of Lake Malawi.
 
It is said that evolutionary biologists believe that the enormous amounts of specialized cichlids from this region are the descendants of a few species which adapted over time relative to their surroundings. And due to intense competition for food it is presumed the hundreds of species evolved with specializations in body shape and feeding behaviors with regard to adaption. Some of the most recognizable Mbunas for sale are Bumblebee cichlids, Demasoni cichlids, and Auratus cichlids.
 
These cichlids are some of the most beautifully colored tropical fish paired with unique and distinction body shapes. Many species of mbuna prefer or require herbivore based diets and learn what to feed mbuna fish. For further extensive reading on this subject check out the article Trophic Adaptations. To read further on maintaining and breeding mbuna check out Pam Chin’s article.
