I have 5 Africa Cichlids.......
3- Psedutropheus Crabo
2- Pseudotropheus saulosi
I have a few questions maybe you guys can help me with.. I'm new to the Cichlid world.. Not so much the fish in general.. The 55 Gallon is right next to my desk so I'm constantly spacing out and watching them hahahaha.. Anyway...
First question - I see them like doing something with their mouths lol the best way to describe it is like there flexing their lips like kissing or maybe coughing?? Nothing comes out and they only do it onces.. They flex the lips for like 2-3 seconds and then like close.. Nothing comes out.. Not a real jerking motion.. Just curious?
Two - Earlier I saw the smaller of the three "Psedutropheus Crabo's" stopping in front of one of the "Pseudotropheus Saulosi" and turning on its side in mid air and like vibrate lol, like shake??? And the Saulosi chased it around for a few seconds??? The heck is that??
Last but not least... These Africans are ALWAYS at the bottom.. Very rarely at the mid to low level of the tank.. The top looks so empty is their any other aggressive fish or breed of Cichlid that will kind of stay at the top I can get?
One more quick question lol sorry - Is there any freakin way to tell the sex of them?? Besides picking them out and looking under them?
Thanks a lot!!!!!!!!!
