What are Utakas? I had a friend refer to them as cichlids. But couldn't really tell more than that? Does anyone know anything about Utakas?

Utaka cichlids are cichlids found in the open water areas of lake Malawi in africa.

They should be kept in hard water with a high pH level (around pH8) and a lot of open space to swim on. Make sure the water is well filtered.

Utaka cichlids are mouth brooders.

Are they hard to keep?

They are not ideal beginner fish but you do not need to be an expert to keep them either.
