    My Little Boy Has Grown

    Thanks, it's just hard when you have a pet so long. It's like walking a tightrope with fish because they can just die so easily. I think he must have swam into a rock or the glass and damaged himself fatally. Now it's just the 2 belems and a large geophagus in the tank. I'm not adding anymore...

    My Little Boy Has Grown

    Sad to say I found my beloved Percy dead in his tank yesterday. I have no idea how or what happened but he was totally fine on Saturday. He had a few grazes on him which suggests he may have been startled and perhaps swam into the glass or rocks and really hurt himself. I'm absolutely gutted as...

    Yup, amazing fish African cichlids. He's a male and very dominant but not the most dominant fish in the tank, although he never really dulls his colours like most do, he's always really bright and showy

    Sorry for the late reply. I'd say he's about 8 inches he's in with a geophagus , red spotted severum and a breeding pair of Belem Severums . Never have an ounce of aggression from any of them even when the belems are breeding

    Input For 75 Gallon Tank

    Geo Brasiliensis are demon fish. Very aggressive with other fish and their own kind. I wouldn't recommend from personal experience

    Fire Mouth Vs Severum

    Firemouths are A Holes ;) I have three Severums and they are very peaceful. I don't have plants because it's just not worth it also make sure tankmates are too big to fit in the Severums mouth ! They just see little fish as food and will swallow them up in one go
