    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.

    Hi All I Am Wondering If Adding Airstones To The Aquarium Would Do Any Harm To The Fish I Have? I Am Using An Internal Bio Filter But Yet My Guppies Seem To Be Spending A Lot Of Time At The Top Of The Tank As If They Are Looking For Air. I Was Possibly Thinking Of Gettin Airstone Ornaments To...

  16. Cichlids
    Recently I saw some discus in my local pet store and fell in love with them! They are only about 2"-3", and cluster around the front of the glass to look at you. They are on sale, and I don't think the store has them very often. Would it be all right to put them in a 10 gallon for now, then move...
