Grow to their environment... by Jon Pike
I'm sure you've all heard this idea before, that fish of various kinds will grow to fit their environment, and then stop growing. Does anyone have good -reliable- information on the matter? I'm sure everyone has opinions, and links to opinions, but I'd like to get a handle on some facts if it were...

Should water tests be read with a light shining through it, and held up against the white part of the card, or in shadow, held up against the white part of the card? -- http://www.neopets.com/refer.phtml?username=moosespet

Feeding oscar bugs by Beano
Hi, I like to leave a bit of the lid on my oscars tank open so some bugs can fall in during the night when the light is on. I also feed him any bugs that I find around the house. Are there any particular bugs that might be poisonous to an oscar?

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?

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...
