firemouth behaviour by Meghan Young
Hello everyone, I am a newbie with cichlids and was hoping for some help. The firemouth I have does not do a lot...he sits on the bottom of the tank in his cave most of the time. He doesn't even come out for food (flake)...he only eats what drifts in to him. All levels are ok. Is this normal?

help identifying new fish by Dale
Hello -- I'm quite new to cichlids (a week in) and was hoping someone could help me identify what exactly I've got here. These are the only 3 fish in the tank right now, but I'd like to add more. As I've been reading (and I'm kicking myself for not understanding more before I got into this) I...

Angel fish question by Pedro
I have two albino angel fish. Recently I have seen that the bigger one has a black ray in his upper fin. I have had them since they were dime size. Anything to worry about?

Does Cichlid breed mixed species? by Jimmy
Hi all, If there are different kind/species of Cichlids in the same tank, can female Cichlid (of one specie) mating & breeding with another male Cichlid (of another specie)? If so, will the babies become mixed species? Thanks, Jimmy

Cyprichromis leptosoma by Steve Wolstenholme
I have just treated myself to two adult pairs of Cyprichromis leptosoma. It's many years since I had any of these cichlids. I had completely forgotten about the way Cyprichromis get all the other cichlids out into the open. No hiding places needed. All the fish are out showing off to each...

Isolating incubating female C.Leptosoma by Red Fin
Hi All, Just started a Tanganyikan biotope a few months ago. This is such a great hobby. I was wondering when is the best time to isolate incubating female C.Leptosoma? Anyone here has any experience with these mouth brooders? I just witnessed my dominating male in action with the hatching...

Green Terrors again by JK Coney
Interesting fish. First of all even after all this time, they are just so damned skittish. Even when eating they dart up and then, back down again like lightning. The bigger one dominates and chases the smaller all day. Now that that she just laid eggs, she can't get him/her to get involved at...

Turkey? by JK Coney
Hey I took a chance and threw in a small piece of turkey to my pack. It took awhile, but after a few half hearted pecks they really started to go after it! Who knew? -- JK Sinrod www.MyConeyIslandMemories.com

south african cichlid questions by EMC
Hi, I have 2 South African Cichlids, one Albino and the other Black (I know there are more subcategories, but this is the basic version). Recently the Albino started exhibiting labored open mouthed breathing and would not eat, he has since died. All water levels checked out fine after testing. This...

Keeping Fry Alive by JK Coney
Exactly what do the adults do to keep the free swimming fry alive that I can't? I wait until they are swimming a couple of days. I've tried a couple times to remove some to a hanging breeder, and they all die within hours. Water and temp are the same, and I add a drop or 2 of tube fry food. --...

Dempsey Babies by JK Coney
So I added fish to be a "dither" for my Green Terrors beating on each other. A few black tetras, 2 giant danios, another Terror, and finally a pair of small Jack Dempseys. Well to my surprise the smaller JD laid eggs on a rock in a cave, and the bigger one totally took over. He chased her out...

plant-friendly cichlids? by Michael Grossman
Are there any cichlids, other than the most obvious rams, angelfish, and keyholes that do not dig? I find cichlids interesting, but I like to have plants in my tanks and prefer to do the aquascaping myself. Maybe some kind of shell dwellers? Please only respond if you actually have experience...

Amazon Sword Plants holes by JK Coney

Four old puzzles #1 by James Dow Allen[_2_]
I think one reason rec.puzzles has become less popular is the SPAM onslaught. Why don't we find an otherwise idle ng, perhaps rec.aquaria.freshwater.cichlids as I have done here, begin cross-posting there, and hope the spammers don't follow? Please don't reveal why I aver this memo has unique...
