    Do You Keep Track Of Fish Purchases?

    I’ve been keeping fish for almost 30 years and have traded and sold fish often, most of them cichlids. Over the past few years I’ve started keeping smaller fish and this is the first time I’ve experienced a die-off like this.

    Do You Keep Track Of Fish Purchases?

    I was just using “2000 something” to say I don’t know when I bought them, not an actual date. 8 years sounds close though.

    75 Gal Setup Ideas

    I have a 75g semi-aggressive setup. I have a bandit cichlid, a convict, a fire mouth, a severum, and an angel. There’s posturing from time to time but no fights or shredded fins. Small catfish, full bodied tetras, and loaches make good companions.

    Do You Keep Track Of Fish Purchases?

    I don’t … maybe I should. Last month I lost 4 glass catfish, not all at once but over a period of a couple of weeks. I’d just purchased 8 black widow tetras and they were all fine. Water perimeters were perfect … what could it be? After going through fish profiles for a possible replacement it...

    Thought I Made A Huge Mistake But…

    Introducing a new cichlid into an established community can be scary. I was hopeful because of the low aggression levels of the other cichlids and the size of the tank.

    Thought I Made A Huge Mistake But…

    It’s been a while since I’ve posted something here, I guess it’s because things have been so stable with my tanks but I recently made a change. My 65g was looking a little sparse so I bought 8 black widow tetras to go with my 3 glass catfish and move the angelfish to my 75g cichlid tank. The...

    I Have Cichlids With Tetras And Barbs

    Amen. Juveniles are just finding out where they fit in; as they mature, those same peaceful fish become terrors.

    Sillver Dollar Tank Mates Please

    I like the color of Colombian Blue Tetras. Buenos Aires Tetras should also work. The size of the Silver Dollars was important because they can be very timid when small and get picked on.

    Free Stuff Pros & Cons

    The only ones of any value are the BGK and the Clown Loaches. Luckily, none of the fish are troublemakers so I’ll keep them. I have considered selling the knife and loaches but when they’re bigger.

    I Have Cichlids With Tetras And Barbs

    In an appropriate size tank and thoughtfully planned tank mates, it’s possible; I’ve done the same thing. That being said, did you take into account that as rainbow sharks mature their level of aggression increases? It’s an impressive fish when fully grown and misbehaves even with cichlids.

    Biggest Cichlid For 75 Gallon

    There are quite a few large cichlids that would do well in a 75g. Flowerhorn, Texas, Quetzal, Chocolate, and Midas come to mind. Choosing 1 large cichlid and schooling fish narrows your choices greatly. A Severum would be my first choice. Possibly an Angel, Chocolate or Uaru. Any large tetra...

    65g Trials And Tribulations

    You have so many options with a tank that size. 1 angel, perfect for a tall tank, schooling fish are great, even the gourami is a good choice. The shark and pleco will get a lot bigger costing you space for more fish. Corydoras catfish are interesting bottom dwellers and bristle nose pleco are...

    Need Some Help Picking Fish!

    Agreed. I had a shark cause trouble in a 75g tank. They’re beautiful fish but careful planning is a must.

    Need Some Help Picking Fish!

    I’d also recommend against the sharks. A schooling fish and some kind of catfish/ pleco would complete the stocking. I prefer black neon tertras as schooling fish. I’m giving the nod to cories and the bristle nose pleco.

    Back Into Cichlids

    From what I’ve read, bandits are also passive. I chose these particular cichlids for that reason as aggression comes with breeding. Being so small, I hope I’ve got all males. I’ve noticed the fire mouth displaying to the convict but nothing serious.

    Back Into Cichlids

    Decided to go for semi-aggressive cichlid tank and I believe I have a good mix. First of all, the aquarium is 75g with 4 pictus cats, 6 colombian tetras, and 6 gold barbs. I added a fire mouth about 6 months ago and recently added 1 convict, 1 gold severum, and 1 bandit cichlid. The fire mouth...

    Compatibility Question

    Are Bolivian Rams more compatible with 1 Firemouth in a 75g or 1 Angel in a 65g? I want a group, probably 6 in the 75g; however only a pair in the 65g.
