Default Any good place to view and buy African cichild?

Hello all,

As above, appreciate your feedback which lfs or farm specialize in good variety of quality African cichlid. I had visited some lfs including Clementi, NKS, QH, Serangoon but quality not so good & variety very limited.

Thanks in advance.

there is still hobbyist out there. LFS still got JZX. what quality you looking for? are you ready to pay a premium for it?
cichlids supplies does stock some but i find the pricing way overboard.

Thanks Homester and Young Man.

I'll recce these 2 places.

@Young Man, lol...I don't fancy luxury stuffs, betting on 4D/football...etc. But once in a while in spending on hobby that I really enjoy and to de-stress myself imo is a good investment. In any case, "premium" price is very subjective to each individual not to mention business cost are very much higher now than before so we can't expect prices to remain low. Haha...a small piece of prata kosong also now increased to $1

There (CAS) the kosong prata price is about $3 if you are using that as an analogy.

Well noted with thanks.

I'll certainly go around to visit more lfs/farms and compare before deciding.

Cheers
