I was in the pet shop today, buying tetra food, when I saw the most gorgeous blue cichlid. Fell in love. I didn't buy it though because I have no where to keep it. I really want to see if it's possible for me too keep it. So... Are they solidery fish? Can I only keep it? If I can keep him, would I be able to keep it in a 30cm by 30cm by 30cm tank?? I really doubt it, but on the off chance I could, well that would make my day. Don't worry. I'll only get him if the answers to both this questions are yes. If not when we move house I'll see if I can get a bigger tank for cichlids. Another question. Would I be able to keep it in a tank this size for at very most a year. We have to sell our house first but then I would be able to move it into a bigger tank. Also can someone tell me or link to some great sites for cichlid care. What tank size would be appropriate. I think I will end up keeping cichlids eventually because they are so cool!! Thank you. I will not be keeping that beautiful cichlid if I don't have appropriate conditions for it to live in.
