  7. Demasoni Cichlids

    I have a 55 gallon tank and I just aquired 6 demasoni cichlids I had really high aggression in the tank and lost two early on I read online that they should be kept in groups of 12 .. My question is , is my tank big enough for all these fish ?
  8. Thought I would share some pics of my tank since I haven't done so yet. Full stock list is in my sig. I just added a syno. petricola and 2 juli. dickfeldi (thanks Jayba!), and rearranged all of the rockwork (mostly I removed a lot of it; it was a massive cluttered pile before - this layout also allows for better waterflow), so the water is a touch cloudy still. I'm not sure if it's the new fish or the rearrangement of the rockwork, but the tank seems much more active now, and I've never seen the synodontus so much, even with the lights on (it could also be because of their new "big brother" petricola who is twice the size of the largest lucipinnus... ) Crushed aragonite substrate, two buried pvc pipes, and a mix of dry live rock (from an old saltwater setup) and lava rock with holes drilled in it. A couple other random rocks, a few shells, a piece of driftwood and a giant vallisneria that is slowly melting as various fish nip at it... Filtration is a Rena Filstar XP2, a powerhead running a Hydro-Sponge V, and a second powerhead mostly for water movement as the sponge on the intake is just to provide a little mechanical filtration. 250W submersible heater (forget the brand). Fluorescent lighting; nothing special - it's old and loud and could use replacing. I'll eventually move to LED's just for the power savings. The giant danios never really stay still long enough to take a good pic with an iphone, but you can see them in the full tank shots. (I used them to cycle the tank, since they're cheap and typically hardy fish; I've got nowhere else for them at the moment, so they're staying for now) All the fish are juveniles, except the BN pleco and the petricola. And next time I take pics, I'll at least clean the glass... lol
  9. So my female strawberry peacock is holding, looks like a lot of eggs. I want to strip her in the next couple of days before she spits them out, any tips? I've seen videos of guys holding the fish and opening their mouth with a small tongue depressor so they'll spit the eggs into a bucket. My concern with this is messing with her slime coat, injuring her, etc... This will be my first time so I don't want to lose a fish due to inexperience. Also, if you do hold the fish I'd have to treat her after to help her slime coat... correct? I have a cycled fry tank set up with an egg tumbler. On another note, every where I've read says people strip their cichlids after two weeks. I'm not too sure how long she's been holding but it looks like she's ready to burst. Is there any harm in stripping before the two week marker? Thanks in advance!
  10. Help! I have a mouth brooding cichlid that spit out her eggs as I tried to move her to a safer tank. Will she ever pick them back up?
  11. Hi, I need help identifying a female cichlid of mine. I got her for free when she was a small fry but I still don't know what species she is. She is only about 2.5 inches long today. Are there any experts on this site that can help me? Thanks.
