Ratio System

When viewing fish there will be a set of numbers within the tittle. The first number corresponds to males, and the second, females. For example if you see 1:2, this mean for every three fish of that particular species purchased, you will receive 1 male and 2 females. If only 2 fish are purchased, you will receive 1 male and 1 female.

(1:1)  1 male to 1 female ratio

(1:2)  1 male to 2 female ratio

(1:3) 1 male to 3 female ratio

(4:8 Group) 4 males to 8 females

Captive Bred Foods

All our Wild cichlids are weaned onto 'Vitalis Cichlid Pellets' (Red or Green) and flake foods. This is available from our dry good section with free UK shipping. We highly recommend that our wild cichlids are continued to be reared on these foods as the contain a full spectrum diet that they require to stay healthy and free from disease.
