Bumblebee Cichlid


The Bumblebee Cichlid is from Lake Malawi in Africa. They are also known as the Hornet Cichlid or Chameleon Cichlid. They are a deepwater cichlid. Color-wise the Bumblebee Cichlid is golden yellow with vertical brown/black bars running the length of its body.

Provide the Bumblebee Cichlid with plenty of hiding spaces in your tank so they can set up territories. You can feed them a variety of food from flakes to pellets.

I bought two bumblebee cichlids early in my attempts to keep african cichlids. They are very hardy and personable…Only keep with african cichlids as they are aggressive. They are a very nice color as juvenilles; but I have read they darken as they mature and they can get up to 8″.
