  3. Garlic in fish food

    Thanks mate added some to my tropheus sera veggie flake. Just bought a colony of about 40 and out of all that 1 hadn't eaten since i got them into my tanks on sunday. Was starting to get abit worried and started to think it may have been bloat. Ive got meds here for it just didnt want that to be the case. The fish ate this afternoon. Not alot like the others but definitely took some decent sized pieces of flake so im hopefully he will be fine now.

    Hi Dadaman80, a few of my fish came from a African cichlid breeder here in Melbourne, the rest came from Melbourne tropical fish imports, Hifin Aqaurium , and Barnseys Cichids. All in Victoria. Selection and range come and go, if your there at the right time the harder to find africans can be found. My current stock is below, all getting along fine, a few little chases here and there but all good. sp35 Electric yellow Polystigma Red empress Red ruiben Sulfar crest Lithobite Electric blue, Sciaenochromis fryeri white knight, Sciaenochromis fryeri Benga peacock Jacobfreibergi Eureka Tetrastigma Protomelas similis Gissel Deepwater hap venustus Copadichromis Azurus strawberry peacock redfin borleyi Had all these for several months now, ranging in size from 4 inch, 5 inch and 6inch. none fighting....none do serious single out chasing or harassing. I am very happy, this worked for me, might not work for others. Most i raised from 3inch size or tad smaller. All male tank.

    Did you take any pictures of yours?

    haven't seen any available for a while now
  21. Looking for Naevochromis Chrysogaster

    I have a young group growing in tank with young rostratus and nigriventer. I've found them to be quite placid and yet relatively robust - they don't cause trouble, but they also seem able to hold their own with "tougher" tank mates. While I haven't personally kept them with "softer" haps, from what I've seen I suspect that they would do quite well, particularly in an all male tank. They are an absolutely stunning fish when in full colour!!!!! Well worth trying!!
  22. Ophthalmotilapia ventralis

    I have a 6x2x2 im going to stock with a few of these guys. Just after any tips i might not have read about yet. Thanks crew.
  23. Crenicichla Lepidota

    Hi All, anyone know if these are still around? About 10 years back I had a pair which I bought through someone at the NCS, name may have been Darryl? Around the time they were everywhere and would definitely be something I would like to devote a tank to again.
  24. peacock cichlids keeping hard?

    Hi Roos, I just tuned into this thread. I also have an african peacock tank woth aulonocara, placidochromis and protomelas varieties. Theres some quite unique fish on your list. May I ask where you get your fish from? In particular this variant Protomelas virgatus Pombo "Yellow Chin" ?? cheers Dan
  25. Looking for Naevochromis Chrysogaster

    Hey guys, i know this is an old thread but was just after some advice on the temperament of tge Naevochromis chrysogaster. Is this a peacful fish? How would a male go in an all male display tank with Aulonocara, Placidochromis and Protomelas varieties? Cheers Dan
  26. LED Lighting

    ACTcichlidlover you go from basic freshwater Worx light that places like Techden and Age of Aquariums do to units that are programmable light cycles that can imitate lighting storms I have the Worx unit and it has no problem lighting up a 2' deep tank
