Cichlids on stamps for hobbyists and collectors

cichlids

For cichlid hobbyists that collect stamps or even if you are not a stamp collector, cichlids depicted on stamps are fun and interesting. As expected, several African nations put out a variety of stamps with cichlid artwork (just google “cichlid stamps”). Most stamps depict species local to their waters. Pictured above is a strange set of stamps from Azerbaijan. Not only does it include 3 cichlid species from the New World, but also a cat. The three cichlid species are Symphysodon aequifasciatus (discus), Pterophyllum scalare (angelfish), and Thorichthys meeki (firemouth). To discuss cichlids on stamps it’s probably best to do it in the General Aquaria Discussion forum. The individual species depicted on the stamps can be discussed in the Central and South American species forums.
