    Hey, I used to be in the hobby and I was in this forum too (some of you might remember me).

    Hello, I'm a newer fish tank keeper. I currently have a setup with three 1 year old Jack Dempseys of different varieties and as much as I love them I find it a little sad that I can't add anymore fish to their tank due to their aggressive nature. So I want to set up a second tank. Originally I...

    Okay, so October 2009 I bought my first cichlids (unless you count angels, but that was when I was younger and didn't research anything): four convict cichlids. Turned out there were exactly 2 males and 2 females. The top two fish paired up, and killed the unmatched female. I managed to save the...

  8. Cichlids
    Hi there, I'm new and this is my first post but I'm sure there will be many more. Any way... My questions are about pike cichlids. I have a 40 gallon tank, I know that's a little small for most pike. The tank is custom (36'' long 16" tall 18" deep) so it's not as tall but it's bigger front to...

    I have a 125 gallon freshwater tank that we cycled with roseys (we now know about fishless cycling but a local pet store advised us to do it this way) and we saw a spike in nitrites and then low ammonia levels. We added our fish a couple every week or so and all was well for a few weeks. Then...
