Sometimes referred to as the Afra Cichlid, Red Top Afra, or White Top Afra, the Dogtooth Cichlid is a small Malawi mbuna that originates from rocky areas in Lake Malawi, Africa. The Dogtooth Cichlid is a fascinating fish that comes in many variations depending on where it’s from and what moods they’re feeling.
