This vibrant Zebra Africa Cichlid makes the perfect pet. This fish is generally peaceful with fish of the same size and temperament, but may eat fish small enough to fit into their mouths. They may also be territorial or aggressive to others of their species. Cichlids are middle swimmers, so be sure to add some top and bottom swimmers as well. Ask a PetSmart associate to help you choose.
