Just got the fish I rescued today!
My friend needed a home right away for one of her cichlids and I offered to take it because I had an empty 25 gallon, well today I got the little guy or girl and it settled right in. The currently unnamed fish checked out the tunnels I made and settled right in. I wasnt planning on getting a cichlid right away but a friend was in need and after watching the fishy today I gotta say its fantastic. Just wanted to share. btw I will be getting many more rocks.
My tank had just finished cycling when I was offered my fish named Wanda. I wasnt planning on doing a cichlid tank but now after all the researching and watching her I am going to do a complete Malawi tank by Christmas this year! Since my tank is only 25 gallons I will keep it solo till the upgrade unless I can find something from that region that will stay small. No rush though. I think its a female Red Peacock. Thanks for the responses !
Big Malawi tanks are gorgeous. They look so good with such a simple setup. Sand, big rock piles, a simple black background and presto, you've got an amazing looking fish tank. The fish are easy to care for too, provided you feed them the right foods, have plenty of filtration and stay on top of water changes, and provide the water parameters they really appreciate (plenty hard and basic).

I've heard that too, but I only have 2 fake plants in the tank now and she hasn't even looked twice at them. Maybe they only destroy real plants??? I'm not sure :P I believe what they say about cichlids having more personality than other fish though! Shes been doing pretty good these past few days.
