The Cichlid Combo
I've been waiting years to set up my own tank, put in whatever fish I want, arrange it the way I want. I grew up on my father's African tank, so I never had much say in what would be going into the tank. (I just got to clean it for him) Now that I have my own, I got all of my childhood cichlids, plus all of the ones we could never seem to get a handle on (aggression wise). I love having all the different species and colors all in one tank. The aggression level is rather mild in the tank, I have overstocked the tank quite a bit. Hope you enjoy!!! ------- Update: We have fry!!! My Pseudo has been holding and she has released 9 babies. They are in the breeder right now and all are doing great. ------- 11/29/5 - My largest Lemon Yellow female is holding, looks like more fry are on the way!!! ------- 12/4/5 - MORE breeding going on, the parrots in the other tank laid eggs. I'm going to have to turn my house into a full aquarium. ------- 12/7/5 - 11 Lemon Yellow fry were born and they are all in the breeder. My Pseudo Saulosi is now holding and it really looks like my Pseudo Demasoni has something in her mouth too, I'm gonna keep checking on her but she might be holding also. ------- 12/15/5 - Well, good and bad news today... Lost a couple Lemon Yellow fry and a couple Pseudo fry from the first batch. But, we have now sixteen more Pseudo fry from the Saulosi. Wish us luck! ------- 12/21/5 - It looks like a couple of fry somehow squeezed out of the breeder while I was at work, now down to 14 from the original 16 we had. I moved all of the fry now to a small tank... we got 30 total fry in it. ------- 12/3/6 - My fish decided to start off the New Years with a lot of "You Know What" Noticed my Electric Blue is mating in a cave and right in a cave above that, my two Orange Zebras were mating also. So far the female zebra looks like she has a lot of eggs, but nothing yet with my Electric Blue.
