Quote:If your ever near Galion, Ohio visit KC's Aquaworld for the best combination of knowledge and selection of cichlids that I've found in Ohio!!!
About Yourself:More photos coming soon.... please visit again!
Fish Kept:Currently: 2 pleco. 2 featherfin synodontis. 1 male sunshine peacock, 2 female. 1 male O.B. peacock 1 female, I SRONGLY ADVISE only keep 1 auloncara male. The Alpha continually displays aggression to affirm dominance. Often the Beta male will never reach his full color potential as a result of this pressure. 1 male Cyrtocara Moori, 1 female. 1 Male Burundi Frontosa, 1 unsexed. 1 Black Calvus. 1 Yellow Calvus. 1 male Scienchromis ahli, 1 female. 1 Male labidochromis, 1 female. 1 female protomelus stevini (Taiwan reef) 1 Red top Fulleborni. and 6 Giant Danios. The Giant Danios do wonderfully in a cichlid tank. They provide a contrast between predator/ prey if you will. Even if that is not the case. Also, through my observations I believe the skiddish by nature danios allow the cichlids to relax. It's almost as if the cichlids key off of their response to danger. They also provide action at the top off the tank creating balanced levels. Cichlids mid to bottom and synodontis residing at the bottom.
Corals/Plants:5 crinum thianum. 1 Anubias flazzeli. 1 Anubias Barteri. 3 Java ferns. 2 Java Windelov. approximately 5 cups of java moss. 1 potted crypt wendtii. 5 bunches of Hornwort. All low light, high PH tolerant plants. Also, the varieties chosen are unlikely to be eaten by all but 1 of my cichlids. I do keep 1 herbivour, the fulleorini, who will at times nibble, but very little or no damage is incurred. The introduction of an abundance of Hornwort has clarified my water significantly. Of course, as with anything, read up on it prior to introducing it to your tank
Advice:I agree with everyone that states: "Get the largest tank one can afford without getting divorced." Learn as much as one can. It only enriches the experience. identification, behavioral, and dietary traits. Aquascaping is a key factor in reducing stress resulting from conspecific hostility. Also, selecting specimines from varying sub-species will avoid this potential problem. For example: Pick your favorite auloncara, pundamilla, haplochrome, Protomealus etc..
