A male cutteri cichlid would be a harder to find option. Similar to a convict, but brighter colors. My male was pretty personable. An electric blue acara would also be an option. Very pretty to look at and pretty personable IMO.
That sounds like a very varied diet that should be giving your flowerhorn the nutrients it needs. I would look at other things that could be making his color duller. Any tank mates that could be bullying it? What are your water parameters and water temperature?
The microbubbles aren’t from the python. They are from the faucet. The fact that people use pythons has nothing to do with it. I was mainly asking for help with how to reduce the microbubbles (white water).
I have a heater and I monitor the temp of the water during the water change. Like I said...
Never mind he’s swimming fine now. It’s a miracle. He went from barely breathing and upside down on the bottom of the tank to swimming around. I’m gonna leave the red tailed shark in there for a few hours just in case.
I will try the sponge material. Thank you! Yea I read that the cold weather Makes the microbubbles worse.
Anything I can do to help the pictus? I’m assuming his swim bladder is the biggest problem now. I turned the light off to encourage him to rest. I don’t think there’s much else I can do.
I unscrew that faucet to attach the python. Maybe if I put an air stone in the end of the python when I’m filling the water the bubbles won’t happen. I know I could age my water by leaving it in a bucket but that would be hard to do adequate water changes on a 40 gallon tank.
So it has been a while since I have been on here, but I just had a water change kill my fish. Actually one is still kicking but I doubt he will come back. The fish that died were a picture cat and a red tailed shark. The only thing I noticed was that the water had ALOT of tiny bubbles in it and...
So I used to have tanks ranging from 10 gallons to 120 gallons but when I moved out of my moms house I had to sell them all, but I finally decided to dive back in and I did so with a 10 gallon. I had a hard time deciding what to stock it with until I saw the tag for dwarf orange crayfish and got...
It sadly died. I think it was Bc it go stuck behind the rock. It was in quarantine and today was the day I was going to put it and my pearl gourami in their tanks. Do y'all think it'd be safe to move the pearl? I'm leaving for two weeks and no one will be able to do water changes on the quarentine.
So yesterday my acara was a little pale and it's fins were close to it's body so I did a water change and he are and I figured he may have been stressed or something. Well today his eyes are cloudy he has mucusy stuff on him and he's not swimming very well. What can I do? I have been adding para...
Mine would have to be my rabbit, bearded dragon, and my sheep. First is my flemish giant rabbit, Harper.
She is 20lbs and loves going to petting zoos!
Next is my bearded dragon Blaze.
He is probably one of the coolest animals I have had.
And last but not least are my 6 sheep, which...
So this is what it used to look like
This is what it looks like now after the move
I need a tall plant for the back but I can't decide what I want. Vals are an option. The plants I used to have had a habit of dieing and then coming back and it's really got on my nerves. I also need a...

My advice is to never go to a fish store just to look because usually you are gonna end up buying something you don't have the money for.
I would wait it out. A lot of times one of my cichlids will just be annoyed by another one and go after it but as long as the two are about the same size it's fine Bc the submissive one can fight back if it needs to.
Definitely a festivum. They're closely related to angelfish and I wouldn't recommend having them with African cichlids as African cichlids require a higher ph and festivum a prefer to have some plants at least at the top.
If I were you is start searching for what fish interest you. For instance I love cichlids and angelfish but you may like smaller fish. Find out what you like and we can help you find appropriate numbers and tell you what will work well with what.
So I started my day off by volunteering at the Memphis zoo, which happens to be only 10 mins away from my favorite fish store. So I told myself that I would go just to look. Well that didn't happen. I ended up taking an electric blue acara and a pearl gourami home. Now I did my best with...
