Oscars Spawning by Trevor
I recently posted an article with the subject Spawning Demspeys. Well this morning when I went to check on the Depseys I notice the pair of Oscars have spawned as well - on the other side of the tank. I did not notice the eggs yesterday when I did a gravel vac (I might have missed them) so I...

Red Top Cobalt question by Mark Cooper
I was reading online about red top cobalts. Some sources refer to them as pseudotropheus, and others call them maylandia. Are they still considered to be from the pseudotropheus family? Also, when a species is designated BB, what does that refer to? Thanks, Mark

Stranger in town! by Mark Cooper
I was looking at the Malawis in my 75 gallon and saw a fish I didn't recognize. It took me a moment, and then I realized it was the male red top cobalt who apparently matured overnight, because he was showing outstanding color. I didn't even know it was the same fish. Cool!! FWIW, Mark

Oscars & fire eels? by Cookie
I have always wanted a fire eel. Now, at PetsMart, they have 6 SMALL (2-4 inch) fire eels there. Problem is, my one oscar is 7 inches, my other is 4, my JD is 4, and my needlenose gar is 6 inches. This may seem like a no brainer question, but will the eel get eaten? Since they have spiny backs,...

Cicadas... by Doug W
I'm sure somebody other than myself has wondered if any of our large cichlids will be able to take advantage of the soon to be outbreak of the 17-year cycle of those cicada bugs that are due out in the next few weeks in the eastern USA? Anyone have any idea if these bugs will be edible for fish?
