Cichlid disappointment by John Battersby

Convict Cichlid odd behavior by Bill Baxter
Hi! I'm the somewhat proud keeper of a now 5 year old Convict Cichlid. I say "somewhat" because it has been quite an experience getting this far with any fish I've ever owned as most died within the first 6 months! When you buy these in the stores, unless you ask questions, they don't offer...

Tanganyika tank by Stephen Wolstenholme[_2_]
I use to breed Tanganyika cichlids in large quantities about 40 years ago. In those days I could get 5 or more per fish from customers. Now I'm a lot older I decided to start keeping them again so I called a local dealer to get me a tank full of young Tanganyika cichlids. I was interested to...

behavioral question... by [email protected]
We have a juvinille malawi cichlid born in our tank (species unknown) exhibiting some strange behavior. S/he stopped eating several days ago, has what appears to be a swollen jaw, and is now beginning to look emaciated. Otherwise, its behavior appears normal. I realize it may be difficult to...

driftwood discoloration by Big Dummy
I just shelled out $20 at the LPS for a smallish piece of driftwood, in the forlorn idiots hopes that such an expensive piece would not give me the sort of problems that found driftwood potentially usually has, namely contamination, floating, and discoloration of the water. Well I guess two out of...
