    Pair of Festae's Courting

    I must admit i have now got a fond spot for that female. Awesome colours on her better than the males i think. But he is still a big sexy fish. Congrats good luck with them mate.

    Sick Cichlasoma tetracanthus

    The white feces and bloated stomach does seem like an internal parasite plus a bit of fungus here and there. Ok to treat this is what i would do: 1. Increase temperature to around 28C many parasites cant stand temps that high. 2. In turn increase airation s(ignificantly). 3. Continue the promethysul treatment. 4. Drop the melafix becasue it is very similar to prometh but i think prometh is far better. And possibly para-cide and sterazin it is a bit of a medicine cocktail. (but this is at your discreation it is up to you.) 5. How do you clean the gravel every week if you only do water changes once a fortnight? With that Undergravel there will need to be a 30% water change each week if possible. Any updates keep us posted. Good luck!

    Clown with a difference

    I wish i had a pic of my clownie. It has a spot on either side. A perfect round spot between its stripes about 1.5cm in diameter. I thought that was a really cool pattern for a clownie so i took him home from work! lol

    Saratoga info

    Umm transistor. A Jardini Likes his pH at about 6.5. water mediums hardness. at work we have a 6 x 2 x 2 tank with a jardini and 5 archers (one a primitive archer), one black bream, coal grunter (bubbles), murry cod, 3 silver scats, 2 red scats, 5 eelstails cat fish, 2 silver monos. they are more compatible than most people make out.

    my new fish

    Ide watch out the looks of an eels mouth can be very deciving. Same as BGK. but ide keep an eye on the eels. Not really alot of eels come out durin the day and are quite active. Keep him well feed and you grunters should be safe
