  1. MaxineB Initiate Member

    Hey guys I want to stock a 90 gallon with cichilds but am not sure of what kind i kinda want to have a few diffrent kinds in there but would also like them to have a personality in the more aggressive manner. Also please tell me how many fish i can put in because i would want to know this as well. Thanks. (also i would prefer alot of color but will look at all of the options) :)

    SURE, If you can carry it from California to Tennessee on foot, on your back, by yourself, IT'S YOURS ;)

    Ok Deal, I think i could carry 2,880 pounds plus all the decorations and equipment over 2,000 miles by foot.

    Just the water weighs over 3000 pounds, and then you've got 800 pounds of rock and a 500 pound stand and ????
    MaxineB I'm sorry to side track your thred, it won't happen again :;bananawater

    You might as well add a boat to it from how much it weighs.

  14. fissh Well Known Member Member

    There's lots of other types of cichlids, but I love Africans :;bananawater If you decide on them or any other types of cichlids, we'll all be here to help you :)

    Ok great thanks!!! I think I will go with africans if any one has any ideas just let me know i am really excited!

    What kind of filtering does your tank have? How often are you willing to do water changes? Those are the two top questions before you start an African tank :;bananawater

    What about discus or an angle tank?
     
  18. MaxineB Initiate Member

    I have heard that these are diffucult and not as hardy to take care of, if this is true i dont think they are a great choice for me as i am quite busy.

    When i wanted Africans(@fissh if i am wrong correct me) i read Yellow Labs, Acei, and Peacocks are good tank mates(African Cichlid wise)
     
  20. fissh Well Known Member Member

    Yes they' all on the mellow side and should be ok together.

    Are you talking about discus or Africans?
     
  21. Lance0414 Well Known Member Member

    I think the OP meant Discus.
