Advice: Take your time setting up a new tank. PATIENCE! IS THE KEY.Do your research... I started my home aquarium Oct 12, 2011 with 11 African Cichlids (Lake Malawi) 2 Synodontis catfish and 1 Bristle Nose Catfish. After all the agressiveness and tearing up the tank, I sold them and now I am setting up the tank for 4 Discus and the Bristle Nose Catfish. A real chore with getting the water chemistry just right all over again.Discus require just the opposite water chemistry than do the African Cichlids. PATIENCE!!
