Tangled Up in Cichlids


Since 1995 Tangled Up in Cichlids (TUIC) has been an industry leading, global supplier of freshwater tropical fish and is a privately owned direct Import, Export and Breeding facility located in New Jersey, USA. Tangled Up in Cichlids specializes in South & Central American Cichlids, as well as characins, cyprinids, catfish, pleco, and many other rare or unusual species from around the world.  Tangled Up in Cichlids is an Ecommerce-based company that operates out of a closed-to-the-public facility that does not offer walk-in business or group tours. The inventory at TUIC is constantly changing and the online 'stock list' is updated on a weekly basis with everything that is available at that current time. The stock is predominantly wild collected and directly imported from its natural origin. However, TUIC also offers in-house bred or locally bred high-quality stock to provide you with the purest, healthiest, and most diverse stock availability found anywhere in the world.  Please see my weekly stock list for current availability here:
