Tank looks great!
We just put our aquarium back up 2 weeks ago and these
are the new fish we put in it. I think they look awesome.
Tank looks great!
Thanks. We put a lot of work into it.
The tank looks AWESOME! Most of your cichlids are aggressive, but hopefully once they claim their 'territory' they will get along great.
Are you testing the water daily? Since it is a new tank you may need to change 1/4 of the water everyday for about 3 weeks until your nitrite/nitrate/ammonia cycles out. I have had cichlids for about oh, 16 years now, so if you have any questions please ask. I used to work at a Aquatics store, but this was a LONG time ago so I don't remember everything.
Here is a picture of my only tank I have now. It is a 60 gallon. We used to have like 11 aquariums, and we bred frontosas and electric yellows & blues. But after having children we had to downsize. I will admit I don't clean my tank very often anymore..... I am a bad fish mommie.... :bust:
Yeah I have been testing the water every
other day or so. Out PH is 7.8 - 8, and so far there is
very little ammonia. I will be doing about a 20%
water change tomorrow. Wouldn't be doing it for
another week but I leave to go to work in Pa for the
next few weeks. So want to do it so its not bad
when I get back.
I'm pretty sure we are going to get a new tank sometime this year.
We want to get at least a 90 gallon if not bigger.
@bfletch13 .... your tank looks nice. I know nothing about ciclids but your tank looks to be well cared for. @LariP and I are VERY into fancy goldfish; breed, raise, and show them. Lari is secretary of the American Goldfish Assoc. and we go to several shows each year. We also raise and show some koi. I think we have about 15 tanks set up right now, largest is 1000 gallons in the basement. Needless to say we love it... lol
@BruceP I the thread on your gold fish. They are awesome.
This is our first venture with cichlids. Before we had just your
run of the mill Petco fish. So far we are really excited about
these cichlids. They will even play with us when we come to
Oh! Wow that is amazing! Absolutely beautiful!!

nice tank! wish i knew something about them....i had a small one before and could not for the life of me keep it clean and cared for, so i gave up, lol...
Really beautiful!! Now are those salt water? Seems like the prettiest fish are salt water. I know NOTHING about them. I tried to have a tank years ago and it was a disaster! I got several angel fish and the next morning they were floating. Took them back and they were replaced, next morning they were all floating. I took them back. We did this everyday til I finally gave up, and haven't tried it since.
There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!
