Julidochromis ornatus: inbred? by Tjaard de Vries
first of all, perhaps I'm going to try and keep a couple of these fish in a 50l tank (I'm doing things metric, just to be clear :)), if you think that's a bad idea, please say so. but there's a thing I wonder about: inbreeding. I've got a book by Pierre Brichard about the cichlids in Lake...

Why rec.aquaria.freshwater.cichlids by Fishman
Just a thought, why "rec.aquaria.freshwater.cichlids" and not just "rec.aquaria.cichlids" Or are there some marine cichlids I'm not aware of ?

att: fishman, re internal tank plumbing (was spend now save later) by Paul
we were saying... hi fishman, I did the same thing, but I just used a piece of piping. I don't know why so many people go to the trouble of sectioning off a corner.. it gets dirty is hard to clean, and it doesn't look any nicer than a discreetly placed piece of black pvc pipe.
