    I am starting my first tank. Its a plasma fishtank that mounts on a wall. However I know that cichlids arent to be kept in such small spaces. I was wondering if it were possible to put maybe two of the smaller cichlid breeds in this tank, along with any other fish that may be compatible? I hear...

    Help me decide on a fish. This will be the only fish in the tank. I can't decide between getting a red tail cat (they get too big so I'm leaning towards no on this even though they're really cool), a tiger shovelnose catfish, a jaguar cichlid, or a payara (vampire tetra).

I have a 20 gallon reef that i wanted to upgrade and decided to shut down my cichlid tank and upgrade into that. I used the water already from the cichlid tank and used that for the 55 gallon as i mixed it...

    Hi guys, I have been thinking about starting a reef tank for a few years now but the funds just aren't there right now, so I am debating going with cichlids instead. The questions I have been pondering are: are cichlids going to be as difficult to care for as a saltwater tank, will the cost be...

    I'm trying to figure out what fish are best to breed as feeders since I'm hoping to get a red tailed barracuda and other fish that difficult to get to eat frozen and I don't want to have to buy feeders from the store since they bring in diseases (or have in the past when I needed them). I've...

    I would like to stock my 150 with an Oscar, a jack Dempsey, flame mouth. What other fish would be compatable with these cichlids?

    I bought an oscar today and was told that if given live foods they will get HITH disease. Is this the case with all cichlids? And does this happen if they don't have anything else in their diet or can this happen even if they have live foods occasionally? The reason I am asking this is I have a...
