true but if they are sexed properly or if there bought as a pair then it would be fine ... 2 males would efinately be out, 2 females is a middle group ... personally id go with german blue rams ... lots of colour and character

just because the guy with 4000 post ses its so... doesnt mean it is

I'll say this once. Rest assured that Dee is only expressing her opinion and frustrations against the lfs employees she was dealing with. Everyone is entitled to post his/her opinions. You are as well entitled to disagree with each other's statements however this must be done with tact. Any point into arguing will be done with otherwise.

I actually agree with Mike and Jamie's ideas. Most Lake Tangs like the shelldwellers mentioned form a harem and a colony of shelldwellers will actually fit the tank. Just my two cents.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

i have one pair apistos and 3 -keyholes in a 30g a single pair of apistos would be ok in a ten a long low would be preferable to a taller tank

You will get over it This is a public forum and everybody has there rights to express their own opinions if you dont like it then just ignore them or leave.Simple isnt it?

I actually agree with him most of the LFS's talk s T just so they can get you to buy stuff

Thanks Lupin!

I certainly did not mean any disrespect but that has been my experience with the LFS. I found one fish store that is owned and run by a hobbist and I trust him and his wife. Many other stores are staffed with kids that just enjoy the animals and are learning as they go. Picking out fish is a big commitment of time and money. As is setting up a tank. I want to talk to those that know a lot about the hobby and you really do have to hunt for those people and keep in mind that they, too, are trying to run a business and need to make a sale. Dee

New 20 gal tank with African Ciclids. Having a great time with them. Who knew fish had such personalities?

i have to agree on shell dwellers they are a good fish to keep in a 10 gallon. i used to breed smilis in ten gallons before great fish used to sell the babys for 10 each at fish auctions. and they are facinating to observe. make sure you have a nice size sand base lots of shells hard water and they are harlem breeders so one male to 3 females works out. i throw in some trumpet snails in the mix also becuase of the sand, small fish but youll be surprised by their strentgh. use escargot shells or old mystery snail shells.

I HAVE BEEN BREEDING VARIOUS CICHLIDS FOR OVER 25 YEARS AND I HAVE NEVER HAD SUCCESS WITH ANY CICHLID IN A 10 GALLON TANK EXCEPT FOR A FEMALE WITH EGGS ANS SHE IS QUICKLY REMOVED AFTER SHE EVACUATES HER FRY.......AND THEY ARE TRADED OR SOLD AT 1/2 " .......THEY DEVELOP TERRITORY QUICKLY AND IF THERE IS LITTLE TERRITORY AND LOTS OF FISH SOME ONE IS GONNA GET BULLIED AND DEAD.......
