The group Dwarf Cichlids is not a well-defined group of fish from a certain genus. When adding fish to this group we just look at the maximum length. The group Dwarf cichlids consists of all cichlids that stay smaller than about 10 to 12 centimeters.

Different authors and websites have different ideas about the maximum length and origin of the fish. Some only include the South American cichlids of less than 10 centimeters, others add the West African and / or the smaller Malawi cichlids.

On this website we use the following characteristics for assessing whether a species is a Dwarf cichlid or not:

  All origins
  Total length including tail smaller than 10 centimeters
  Belonging to the Cichlidae family
