I am thinking of getting a subscription but want to know which is better?

I do enjoy reading more about cichlids so which one usually has more about cichlids?

They're both owned by the same corporation, Bow Tie...so in many ways they can be very similar although FAMA tends to be more technical. I suscribe to Aquarium Fish but not FAMA (that one I pick up at my local bookstore if it's interesting). Another good mag I suscribe to is Tropical Fish Hobbyist. In fact if I could only get one mag, it would be TFH. They tend to have a bit more on cichlids but still have enough on salt and other fish to keep me interested. I know there is a mag called Cichlid News but I have only seen that at one of my fav fish stores (it was kinda pricey too like $6 or $7 an issue), and I think that comes out like every other month or so.

HTH :D

I suscribe to Aquarium Fish magazine and i've found a few mistakes when they talk about cichlids.

One of their mistakes in the latest issue:

It shows a pic of a holding Metriaclima estherae and directly below it says:
"To be in the best health, fish should have their preferred water conditions. Malawi cichlids, such as Pseudotropheus zebra, like softer water with a low pH."
