  1. Cool mate, thanks for the advise... I will try it and report back....
  2. Thanks mate, If I go with Metro, how long should I treat for and what would be the recommended dose?
  3. I would love to, however I am currently outside the country 😔
  4. Hi guys, It has been along time since my last post, I am back and unfortunately with a problem that I cannot seem to treat. One of my Eletric blue Ahli display male had a fight with a male Taiwan reef and injured his eye. It has been a week since I have isolated him into a quarantine tank, and been treating him with Epsom salt, sea salt and melafix, with 80% water change every 2 days... however the symptoms seems to worsen rather then get better, as after moving him to the quarantine tank, the eye was not as swollen and it did not have fungus or pus. Could anyone please help me here, should I resort to a fungus medicine or antibiotics? TIA
  5. Much appreciated guys, This is actually my tank, I have bought the ob peacocks only for display purpose , already aware of them being hybrids...thanks.
  6. Hi guys, It has been a long time since my last post. I managed to setup a tank while overseas and need some help identifying some of malawis I got in my display tank. Photos are attached, tell me what you think. Thanks
  7. Hi Guys, I had these since they were around 4cm, and I was wondering if anyone can sex them for me from the pictures posted below. I think I have 1 male and 2 females but I may be wrong, so your help is much appreciated. Male???? Female???? Female?? Kind regards, Aymen

  9. Try what is suggested above, also add a either a DIY or purchase a sponge filter... I had similar issues after some water changes and the sponge filter tend to clear it in a couple of hours. Good luck
  10. water changes will keep your fish healthy as long as you keep an eye on the temp, PH, amonia and nitrate levels... Do the testing before and then run a test after to check and maitain the same levels... I normally do a 35% water change every week. Aymen
  11. the water parameters seem fine, it is big possibility that hr cobalt is the cause of this death , you can try adding some bristlenise catfish as they are pretty tought fellas abd the cobalt will not be able to pick on them. Welcome to the forums anyway. Keep us updared with what is happening.
  12. Likewise, excellent product and very safe for your fish
  13. I am with you on this definitely as there are alot of confusion with Victorians here in AUS... The picture I have posted looks very similar to the last one in the list of the photos you posted.... I did come across a website in which it mentioned something about the colors fading from deep red and yellow to bright red and and yellow when maturing, and that it is all based on the food you are feeding.... The picture of the xmas fulu that you posted under the real xmas fulu can be of the last one you posted in the list of so called xmas fulu companring the colors. Will never get a hand on this, unless we start fresh with a new WC fish imported. Regards, Aymen
  14. The last picture posted by Mattrox is not of Xmas Fulu based on the information from the site I have posted earlier, rather it is of either a Neochromis rufocaudalis "Makobe Island" (male) or Neochromis rufocaudalis "Saa Nane" (male) where the Saa Nane has more intense blue on the belly part.... The picture I have posted above is of an adult Haplochromis (Xystichromis) sp
  15. Hi Guys, I have come across this mad page relating to this issue: http://www.african-c...ke_Victoria.htm Check it out and match it with what you currently have in order to determine whether you have a hybrid or not... This is my Xmas Fulu:
