My first cichlid!! Please help ID
We wanted something other than bettas, although we love our bettas. We picked up 2 african cichlids, I know that is a broad term. I have done some research ourselves, but can't findout what they are, can you please help me ID them??
Also, If I am only going to have the two in their own tank, what size should I have??
the light blue one looks like a pseudotrpheus socolofi and i'm not sure about the other.
All look like hybrids of a Acei cichlid which are from africa first one def looks like a acei though
You got a beautiful acie and socolofi there. The acei might be showing a little stress barring because of a more agrresive tank mate. Mbunas will often change thier color when stressed or holding babies.
I would stil watch that socolofi they are a little on the aggressive side as far as mbuna go. I would increase the numbers of both. They look very nice.
We love our cichlids, but one died the other day, and another died today. Plus, when we got up this morning one of my bettas had died. I don't understand. Ever since I brought the cichlids home I have had nothing but trouble. I still have 2 cichlids left, and I am taking them back today. We are treating the other betta for ich right now, and he is doing much better. I think the ich came from the cichlids, so we have decided to take them back, clean the tank and recycle it and try something else. I will not be buying fish from petco anymore. The cichlids are the only ones I've bought there. I guess I should have known better, I was there about a month ago and almost half of their fish in the tanks were dead, and so were a lot of their bettas. I learned my lesson the hard way. So now I have an empty 6gl, and a 10gl with 4 otos. I was wondering if anyone knew how many female bettas I could keep in a 10gl with 4 ottos. I am dying for a sorority tank.
