    I need help and I heard you were the guy. I have a cichlid tank right now I have a 20 gallon long fish tank. I feel over stocked but it doesn't look that way. I have 5 cichlids jack Dempsey, two convicts, jewel, and some mixed african yellow fish with black stripes. I'm not sure if I should upgrade soon or not. I feed them brine shrimp and sometimes flakes. But yet I don't know how often I should feed them.

    I have to caves on the sides and some kind of log thing in the middle with plants spread around freely. Is that suitable for them? Or do you think I should upgrade to something bigger soon? And if you do how big do you think it should be?

    Thank you for your help please reply soon! :)

    Hi,

    I have purchased my fist tank a 29 gallon and could use some advise. I have set it up for freshwater added my decor, water, heater and filter I am now ready to cycle the tank. I have done a lot of research including reading many posts on this site and have decided to do a fishless cycle. Because I can not find any ammonia I have added a medium raw shrimp inside a peace of nylon. the tank has been set up for 4 days now so far no ammonia. How long should it take before I start to see ammonia? and is there anything else I should be doing.

    p.s. I have well water that has no additive and is not conected to a softner or filtration system, the water has been tested and is not hard it has a ph level of 7.2

    any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    oh cool. So about my tank...

    Its actually 4 1/2 feet, so I think its fine. And also, is the EHEIM external filter good enough? I read that an external filter may not be good enough for a cichlid tank.

    Hey tazman... I noticed you've joined less than a month ago but you're already a member! How did you do that?Well, I just wanted to thank you personally for your help for me and the forum as a whole. If it weren't for you, my Lake Malawi tank wouldn't have come together. Once again, thanks a lot!
