Bio: Josh Cunningham has been keeping & breeding African Cichlids for 20+ years. He started with African Cichlids from Lake Malawi & Lake Victoria in a 400sq ft basement. During this time, he was mainly breeding 4-5 kinds of cichlids & trading fry back to the pet shop for food & filter media. Josh Cunningham dinner talk on JUNE 15, 2019 He then made a decision to move into a bigger house. Without cichlids for a couple of years he grew antsy & acquired a 55g tank, set it up, stocked it & then, BANG! Multiple tank syndrome kicked in again. At this point, he decided a fishroom in the basement was in order. Designs were made, tanks & fish purchased. A 'Fishaholic' was born again! His fishroom today has 94 tanks from 15g-180g & in total is over 5,000 gallons.
To date Josh has spawned over 140+ kinds of African Cichlids from all 3 rift lakes. He has achieved master breeder status in the Michigan Cichlid Association & Ohio Cichlid Association. He was also named Grand Champion breeder of the American Cichlid Association in 2015 for most spawns in a year. He spends his time in the fishroom doing water changes, tank maintenance & working with different species. In addition, he also runs a business called Cunningham Cichlids & can also be found on
