Question about Compatibility
So I have had my 55 (170 L??) gallon tank up and running for awhile now (well over a month) and so far only have a single Electric Blue "Ahli" cichlid. After searching Google for awhile I have gotten mixed results on what exactly an "Ahli" is.. is it this: Hemichromis bimaculatus
or Sciaenochromis fryeri
? Mine looks like the latter; Sciaenochromis fryeri
but i'm still confused?
I was wondering what fish (cichlids of course) are compatible with an Electric Blue Ahli? And how many should I stock? I really like the look and idea of having a bright blue fish with a bright yellow fish; maybe a Yellow Lab?
Also; what's a good substrate for these guys? I need something sorta sandy almost.... the Ahli likes to bury himself/herself and I don't want it to get hurt. :)
Also forgot to say that I keep my water at 78°F (~25°C) and all my levels (pH, ammo, nitrate, nitrite, etc) are looking great thus far.
