  1. What’s wrong with my Calvus

    Would not expect high nitrates to cause those symptoms, but water changes are never a bad idea IMHO..... well unless the problem is low temperature!
  2. What’s wrong with my Calvus

    Double checking nitrite confirmed at 0ppm? Check temperature isnt too cool. Flat fish are very easy to inspect with a microscope while alive to confirm flukes. Without doing that its all guess work.
  3. Red Worm Identification please

    Looks harmless to me. Like finding an earthworm in ya garden.
  4. Pumice as a Filter Medium

    The external surface area is good but the closed cell structure locks off most the internal surface area. A case of smaller bits are prob a lot better.
  5. peacock cichlids keeping hard?

    Conspecific aggression is a hell of a thing.
  6. Pseudotropheus Polit

    I still get messages about polit females I had for sale on a forum almost 10 years ago! I found Pseudotropheus perspicax harder to sell, which really upset me as they are such beautiful fish.
  7. Pseudotropheus Polit

    Polit are amazing if you can post the coloured male photos. People dont know what they are until they see them.
  8. peacock cichlids keeping hard?

    Dont have an exact date on the NLS at this stage. Plenty of 2mm medium fish on hand, as well as the algae max which seems to be slowly over taking the cichlid pellet as the prefered Malawi pellet.
  9. peacock cichlids keeping hard?

    If you can get a nice male theres some good placidochromis species. Otherwise sulphur crested lithobates and blue dolphins. A lot of blue suggestions tho :/
  10. Waste in cyps

    May have a gut parasite, usually they respond well to some flagyl soaked food.
  11. peacock cichlids keeping hard?

    Any fish when added will have a frantic way of swimming.... this signals they are prey and most cichlids will have a go at them. Even gently chasing fish around with ya arm to distract them from the new comers you just added will often be enough. That first swim from surface to rocks is 90% of the danger involved.
  12. Help Needed

    Any chance you are seeing delayed stress from a nitrite spike? Have filters been cleaned in tap water or totally replaced in last month?
  13. Waste in cyps

    Increasing frequency of feeding never hurts, a small drop of spectrum grow from an auto feeder a few extra times a day usually does the trick. I hear ya on the A1 water, but do you have test results you can post?
  14. peacock cichlids keeping hard?

    IMHO the electric yellow is a mistake as it means you cannot feed high astax foods without it going brown/black. If you can swap it out with benga/sunshine peacocks, you can feed these aggressive colour foods and all yer fish with look insanely pretty. Never hurts to hit them with rgb or heavy blue/red L.E.D. lights to max it out Then again.... a single yellow wouldnt stop me.
  15. peacock cichlids keeping hard?

    Easy as pie Just have a bare sand tank, and only males. Nothing to fight over. I would add about 25. And feed a combo of NLS and hikari blood parrot. Bling!
