Author Topic: African Cichlid Interbreeding  (Read 5546 times)

I have a 55gal. tank of various African Cichlids.  3 times now I have had interbreeding between species.  I don't mind because it is good to have plenty of Africans together to help spread their aggression and the broods are quite small.  In fact each time this has happened I have ended up with 1 new fish.  Is this common for an African Cichlid community setup?
Whoa. Where did I put all my stuff?

Seeems most if not all malawi cichlids can interbreed and produce fertile offspring. I guess someone must have come up with a new definition for the word species,and genus for that matter,while I wasnt looking.

Waiting will fill
