    Hey, so i’m thinking about getting a 55 gallon tank and stocking it with some peacocks and a redtail shark, but didn’t know how many peacocks to put into it? I’ve heard a lot about overstocking it and such and would like to try and make it more of a male oriented tank. All suggestions would help!

    Came across some hongsloi in my LFS and I'm instantly hooked. Need to know all about them. Currently my plan is to keep a group of 4-5 but I'm not sure how males will fare with each other. Another option is to pair them up with some bolivian rams. Tank size hasn't been decided yet but...

    Hi All, Started a tropheus tank for a while with hardscape only, after a year and a half or so got inspired by planted aquariums and now I'm taking a stab at adding plants to the tank =) A general rule for keeping tropheus is to keep things simple and stable so I've opted to start with low tech...

    Is it possible to tell the gender of this turquoise jewel cichlid? Lots of conflicting info online about how to sex jewels. It's currently around 3.25-3.5 inches long. When I acquired the fish in January 2018 it was around 1.5-1.75 inches or so. No other fish in the tank with him/her.

    Hi, I'm Pat. I just started up a new Waterbox 190.5 destined to be a planted Mbuna (Lake Malawi). I'm planting with (you guessed it) Java Fern, Anubias, and Jungle Vals. Primarily because those are about the only plants Mbuna will not tear to shreds. The Vals are a question mark depending on...

    I am extremely new to aquaculture. I really like the idea of having a hardscaped/planted aquarium, probably 40-55 Gal, with cichlids. I've read that cichlids can be a terror to plants though. Any suggestions on plant/cichlid pairings?

    Hi, I initially posted this on NanoReef, but Lingwendil suggested that this would be a more suitable forum for my project, so here I am. :) So, I have a Juwel 180l (200l now - 52g) mbuna tank (40" long, 17" wide, 20" deep) that's currently running the original T5 lighting (~100W) that came...

    Hi, I recently purchased 5 young Blue Rams. 3 males and 2 females. I have had them 4 days now and all of them are eating flake well except for the smallest female? She looks healthy and colorful minus being a little skinny. She actively will poke around the bottom for food and she gets...

    Mid August my family had to care for younger cousins for 2 weeks (Ages 8 & 5). No matter what they did or what i tried they were VERY loud and never stopped running, jumping, screaming, etc. Afterwards my 2 poor GBRs had gone stone gray! :frown2: I thought it was just stress so I gave them a...

    I bought 2 German blues about a 5 days ago. Beautiful fish that have acclimated to the tank and tankmates wonderfully! But I've noticed the female's black coloration will become pale at times and return to normal at others, sometimes quick enough for me to see the change. she's eating fine (mix...

    Hello everyone. So I have been back and forth about fish species. I just can't make up my mind because of the tank dimensions and the awesome piece of driftwood wood I have. The tank will be viewable from both sides, so aqua-scaping will be a tough one for me. I would love to know everyone's...
