American Cichlids was born out of a need to supply hobbyists with top quality New World (American) Cichlids. Located North of Denver, Colorado, we are a full service distributor of Cichlids from Central and South America. 

American Cichlids  will combine orders monthly and also place ‘Special Requests’ to our suppliers. We are a Western United States representative and distributor for Don Conkel’s Tropicals (FL) . Other well known suppliers and hobbyists are involved in the enterprise, it is an evolving endeavor. 

"Wild Caught List" will report new arrivals from breeders, and as they are imported into the USA. Pre-Orders and deposits are required on all orders, we are distributors  not vendors holding stock. Personal attention for hobbyists’ orders and special requests will be a mainstay of American Cichlids. We envision an opportunity to promote awareness, and access to Central / South American Cichlids, and boost appreciation among fresh-water fish enthusiasts

We thank you in advance for your patronage and interest!

We are committed to providing high quality cichlids
and exotic fish—with excellent customer service.
