    Hey guys! My friend recently gave me their 90g tank. It just has a green terror in it. Ive never owned this type of fish nor cichlids. Is there anything i should know? (Its eating the Tetramin fish flakes atm)

    Go slow with it. Let it get used to the change. New owner, new water and stuff.

    In a few weeks you can research new tank mates...if it wants it.

    Youll probably want to get it on pellets as soon as possible unless youre a big fan of cleaning your tank. Flakes and big fish make a giant mess and the males get around a foot long with the females staying a little smaller. Pretty much any cichlid pellet will be better.

    Switch the fish over to hikari cichlid staple. Excellent long term food. Flakes aren't substantial enough for large cichlids.
