    hi is this true?
    Warning: When Kribensis starts to breed, they may become too aggressive to co-exist with Emperor Tetra.

    I checked their proflies and I thought they would all get along.
    I assume these citations are from Aqua-Advisor or similar; Iève not personally kept kribensis, but a cichlid is a cichlid, and any cichlid spawning does rule the tank, at least mine always have. And corys are a real target, since they just bumble along everywhere--and if they stumble upon the eggs or fry, it is game over. Post a thread in the cichlid forum and those with more direct experience can respond. Byron.

    hey byron, was planning on a cichlid tank, just wanted to hear some advice from the best before stocking! Can I keep some Altolamprologus Calvus with Peacock Cichlids? Will it work if I also add a few labidochromis? Here's the thread i started: tropicalfishkeeping.com/cichlids/lake-tanganyikan-style-tank-92118/ (sorry i wasn't allowed to put a url so please add www. and then copy and paste that. Thanks a lot! )
    You will have more knowledgeable responses from the cichlid experts here, in that thread. Byron.

    Byron, you've gave me some pretty good advice in stocking my 35 gallon, so what do you think about this. 1 Bolivian Ram, 6 Marbled or Silver Hatchets, 6-8 Lambchop Rasboras, and maybe 2 Barbucca Diabolica.

    Or 6-8 Hatchet fish, 1 male KIrbensis, 3 female kirbensis and 2 barbucca diabolica. Will either of these work out?

    Best if you start a thread in the disease section; I have very limited experience in disease issues. Byron.

    Today I bought coral-life 10,000k bulbs are they any good? They seem brighter.
    The 10,000K indicates high blue, less red. If combined with the UltraSun, fine; on their own, I wouldn't. The brightness is probably the high blue (crisper white is "brighter" to us). Byron.

    What would be a brand of stronger bulb I can buy? Maybe at a hardware store? I would like to keep more colorful plants and swords. I'm currently using Zoomed UltraSun bulbs. Are lower or bigger kelvin ratings better? I'll see If I can find the power-glo it looks like wal-mart is selling them.
    You won't get more intense tubes from what you have without going to a new fixture; Power-Glo will be a tad more, if you don't mind the hue. Kelvin is the colour temperature, nothing to do with intensity directly. Byron.

    The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

    Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
