Awesome Fish

By Kean Oli4

 

The Cichlid is a beautiful fish and is called the Mbuna in Malawi. Cichlids can grow 2-30 cm which is more valuable if It’s smaller, because aquarium owners want smaller fish. Surprisingly the larger cichlids are eaten by humans. They have really bright colors and can weigh a few grams to two kilograms. They are the most beautiful fish in the world. Amazingly every color is beautiful, they come in bright blues, reds and yellows. As        

You can think they do not want to hide. Freely they glide with beautiful brightness through the water and seem to cry out look at me! They are quite colorful fish.

 

Cichlids are valuable for aquarium owners, they sell easily to aquarium owners that breed with them. They cost $300 in Germany. The word Mbuna means much money. Malawians sell many by plane in Europe. Which one net is worth a lot of money. They gratefully work hard and put 4-5 cichlids in a bag and make the bag half full of water, because they need oxygen. Amazingly the fish is ready to sell as soon as they land after a 12-hour flight. They are also sold in Malawi. Big cichlids are called Chambo and is the best tasting fish, the bones are also eaten. Own one for you aquarium.

 

Cichlids live in a specific habitat. They live in east Africa, because there is warm tropical water. Cichlids which are plentiful live in the top, bottom and middle of lakes. As you may think they thrive only in Africa, really only in lake Malawi. Malawi is home to them. Even thought they have a specific habitat they are amazing.
