New to me Cichlid Tank !
I have adopted a 33 gallon Cichlid tank...I purchased it from someone who already had it all set up so we saved much of the old water and such so we could keep the tanks levels where they were...I'm looking up all I can about my Cichlids but one thing that would help would be to know " what type are they " from looking and comparing pictures on the net I think I have ....
** a red tail shark
** cobalt blue cichlid
** eletric yellow "
** bumblebee "
** a huge algea eater
** I have more I cannot name yet !
In total there are 13 and he has had the tank set up for some time and they have done fine..I have a few I can't name yet..looking up pictures online to try and name them.
I am new and want my fish babies to do well and so far the main important " to do's " is to keep my water temp around 70 - 80 ??
And to make sure my PH level is good..so I want a nice blue ??
I have added and will be adding lot's of rocks to make caves so they can hide...
What do you all feed your cichilds ? Here they say gold fish flakes are fine as it has the right proteins...
Any and all ideas are welcome :) Thanks !!
