Tropical Malawi Flakes
Tropical Malawi Flakes is a staple flake food for mbuna cichlids from Lake Malawi

Lake Malawi cichlids are also known as Mbunas (pronounced mboo-na) which means fish of the rocks.

A multi-complemental flake food with a high content of vegetable components (spinach, nettle, spirulina, cereal germs, etc.) intended for the daily feeding of mbuna cichlids from Lake Malawi. A very varied formula of the food guarantees that the fish have a perfect condition, beautiful colors and favors their beginning of spawning. Fiber and nettle regulate the functioning of the long digestive tube of cichlids. The pea and spirulina are part of a source of proteins of good assimilation. Cereal germs provide important unsaturated fatty acids. An L-carnitine supplement promotes fat metabolism. The food is so tasty that the Malawi flakes are gladly picked up even by imported fish. To vary the diet of cichlids we recommend Super Spirulina Forte .

Do you know what is the right food for cichlid fish?:

Their diet depends on the geographical place of origin, there are omnivorous and herbivorous cichlids. In freedom they generally feed on small crustaceans, algae, small fish. In captivity, it is highly recommended to opt for a professional range feed, leaving aside the commercial ranges for less nutritionally demanding specimens. It is very important that the quality of the algae, flakes or granules is very good, otherwise they are prone to digestive problems. They come from (Lake Malawi, Lake Tanganyika, Lake Victoria, Amazon River)

The habitats of cichlid fish:

The vast majority are in tropical areas

From black, acidic and soft waters (such as the Negro River (Amazonas) to hard and alkaline waters (such as Lake Tanganyika), or even in the brackish waters of river mouths.

The vast majority of cichlids inhabit fresh water but there are both salt and brackish water species, although many of the freshwater species tolerate brackish water for long periods eg ''Cichlasoma urophthalmus''. They can be found living and breeding in saltwater environments such as river mouths, mangrove belts around barrier islands. Several species of tilapia (tilapia, Sarotherodon, and Oreochromis) are resistant to brackish water and can disperse along shorelines between some brackish rivers.

Something in which these fish stand out is in the care they dedicate to their progeny. The clutch, which is not very numerous compared to the fish that do not care about the eggs, will defend it bravely, even against much larger enemies. And the vast majority will take care of the fry for about a month.

As for spawning places, there is everything: in caves, on the surface of stones, in holes dug by themselves, on leaves, etc. Although it should be noted the evolution in some species of cichlids that has led them to incubate the eggs in their own mouth, ensuring greater survival, but at the cost of a smaller number of eggs.

Many of the African species use mouth incubation as a breeding method, which consists of keeping the young protected in the mother's mouth until they reach a considerable size and are released.
