lol - I love it, it's like looking at a snow-globe! What are you doing with all the fry you're getting, are you growing them out in other tanks?

I had my two previous batches eaten by my zebra baby cichlids that I've put in same tank, but this time around they are all alone in a separate nursery and it's already been 4 days that everyone is alive n eatin well, third time will b the good one. I think hahah...
If I run out of space with next batches
well ill just get more nursery tanks haha

just went through the thread and believe it or not - the scape kinda reminded me the shallow slow moving pond/lake biotope of dario dario (a native fish of my home town)! very well composed 'pukur paar' ( as we call it in bengali language)

looking good! Maybe you can start a breeding program and sell to lfs in your area - that would be a fun way to get spending money for more tank - lol

I was in my lfs yesterday, and someone turned in several adult Jeweled Cichlids, they were terrified and all bunched up in a corner, but they were also stunning to look at. I may have to do a cichlid tank after all....

I have a question - in some of your pics you show cichlids that look yellow/goldish with a white pattern that looks like lattice. Are they random hybrids or a specific species? They are my favorite of your fish, and I've never seen them before.

The fish in pic #9 is the one I was asking about (#8 is what the lfs had yesterday - it may have been their first or second day at the store - they were terrified) I love fish #2, never saw that before either...
