Cichlids are popular aquarium residents, the most well-known among the species being angelfish, Oscar, Jack Dempsey, and discus. The family Cichlids inhabits a wide variety of different environments. The various species originate from different continents, including Africa, Asia, and North and South America.
In nature, most cichlids, especially those from the Americas, thrive on a diet of animal proteins. They eat insects and smaller fish. The African variety tends to consume more plant proteins, such as algae, with opportunistic snacking on worms and bugs.
