"I have a 60 gallon reef tank and a mixture of mbuna. I have been studying the nature of cichlid behaviour for 2 1/2 years. What I have discovered is the aggressiveness of a cichlid is born from the very beginning at birth. Theses beautiful creatures, from the moment of birth fight for domminance over territories and constantly jockey for the best positions for survival. Whomever states that cichlids are not aggressive, well, really hasn't spent the time to really get to know there friends...... Cichlid are very interesting builders and excavationers as well. My male Kenyi is always moving gravel around plants(good thing there decor. plants), I do keep anacharis plants to help with there diet, anyway, if you have a clean tank with lots of rock and plants then from time to time you should notice pits and other hiding spots created by these creatures. for the most part cichlids are aggressive and if anyone, who has them as pets should take care and learn because even fish have distinct behavioral traits that makes each one different. In my conclusion, even though aggressive in nature, Mbuna are very doscile and fun to observe."
