Dwarf cichlids prefer aquaria with plenty of hard-leafed plants. They are generally shy, except when they’re breeding, and are considered ideal for community tanks, though they should not be placed with other, non-dwarf, cichlids or other boisterous or aggressive species.

When setting up a tank for Dwarf Cichlids, keep in mind that you will want to provide them with water that is fairly soft. With Dwarf Cichlids, egg laying is generally imminent as well, so it’s important to provide them with a number of caves.
