  3. NLS cichlid formula or Thera A

    Damn a bit too late now. Already got 2 kg nls. Trying to finish off the food I got left and can't wait to try it out and see it for myself. Thank you for the input everyone. Appreciate the info.
  4. Stocking 5x2x2 African Cichlid Tank

    No worries, if you wanted to keep lake Malawi cichlids. Maybe get rid of the drift wood? I was told by few breeders that it lowers the pH of water. but not sure whether it is true or not.
  5. Stocking 5x2x2 African Cichlid Tank

    Not really. I have never seen the mbunas chasing the peacocks. Usually my sunshine peacocks chases the mbunas around. The only aggression I see are between the males of the same species. Then again I have lots of rocks so the weaker one can bolt in between the rocks. Overall the aggression level is low as I only have moderately aggressive mbunas. I might get rid of two manigano i have currently in the tank if they turn out to be aggressive.

  7. Stocking 5x2x2 African Cichlid Tank

    Nice stock. I have similar size tank but mine has sump. I would probably get yelled at here for saying this. I have around 130 in the tank consisting of mbunas and peacocks and few haps. Got most of them from the cichlid auctions as juvelines in March. Most turned into young and colourful juveniles and some has started breeding already. I do weekly 50% water change. Must be doing something right as they are breeding.

    I am using sump but I turn the sump off when I feed them
  9. NLS cichlid formula or Thera A

    So what are you using now? I was thinking of getting 2 kg tub of either cichlid formula or Thera now. And now I am leaning towards cichlid formula
  10. NLS cichlid formula or Thera A

    My first post. I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on NLS cichlid formulla and Thera. Which will be better? I have a tank with peacocks, mbuna, some Haps. And 4 Burundis.

    http://www.petlink.com.au/Classifieds/sale/2618293.html I got some ice berg juvelines from him two months ago and right now they are around 5cm and starting to colour up really nice. I meet him and his mom at the cichlid auction few months ago and I went to his house and picked some ice bergs. I saw their dad and he somewhat looks like the picture you posted up. If you are curious you can go have a look for yourself he doesn't care whether you buy anything or not.
  14. Help to Diagnose Sickness

    Do you have air stones or sponge filters in your tank? Once you increase the temperature of the tank it reduces the oxygen in water. Maybe that's why the the silver dollar is up gasping for air For the ich treatment this might help http://www.cichlid-forum.com/articles/ich.php
