    Thanks for your reply Priscacara, the ammonia and nitrites are at 0, if its the fine particles what could i do to prevent this? it could be the strength of my filter swirling the sand around im not sure...
  8. Scratching fish

    Hey guys, ive recently purchased 4 cichlids and placed them in my aquarium which previously had no fish in it, ive noticed on seperate occasions the fish scratch themselves on the rocks and sand, all the fish do this at different times.. I haven't noticed any white spots on the fish and being the amateur fish keeper that i am, i wouldn't have a clue on what to do.. so could anyone please assist me here? Thanks Much Appreciate!
