From the origins of a hobby, a company emerged in 1986, which today offers ornamental fish, mainly perch (known in the trade as cichlids), in more than 600 aquariums on 400 m². In the meantime, the company, founded by Helmut Löfflad, has developed into a retail and wholesale trade in aquaristics with a considerable market share and an extensive customer base that extends far beyond regional borders. Direct imports from East Africa and South America offer national and international customers high-quality perch and catfish.
On January 1st, 2022, after more than three decades, her Höfflad handed over his company to Mr. Tobias Weißenburger. The Cichlidenstadel then moved to the new premises at Berghausen 1 in 89434 Blindheim. There are now around 700 aquariums on 400 square meters in the new facility.
The Cichlidenstadl offers a well-rounded range of aquaristic accessories, from aquarium to ornamental fish. You can expect a specialist shop with above-average willingness to perform, combined with friendly and advice-intensive customer support. Feel free to come by and try it out!
