    So I bought a 50 gallon tank on craigslist, just planning on filling it with gouramis or something like that when the seller said that he recommended cichlids.

    Looking to get rid of all fry & juvies with imperfect barring. I figure there'll be 10+ fish total, ranging from 3/4" to maybe 2". I would ship, but I don't want to take that chance and have the fish die on us. These are best kept in large groups (12 or more) so it's all or none. Asking $20 for...

  11. Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I have had a couple aquariums in the past, but I always stuck to the very community friendly species of fish. I recently decided its time to get my tank all setup again, but I would like to switch it up a bit. I have a clean slate to start with. Just an empty 29 gal tank, waiting for...

    What kind of cichlid is this? I think he is awesome but he has bred with another cichlid but they are very different! Took this male in for a friend since she didn't want to just get rid of him. Two days later I notice my female isn't eating and isn't coming out of our hollow ship, then about a...

    Yesterday I purchased two Blue Ram cichlids from a pet shop in a nearby town and upon purchasing them they informed me that my pH should be about 6.5 for these fish. Sadly I was unaware, until I got home and had already added the fish to my aquarium, that my pH was about one degree too high...
