    Can fish survive a 1-month period?

    We have been through the inappropriate stocking here several times in the past, to no avail obviously.

    Hi Nick, no idea TBH. I have tried all sorts of ways and keep getting a security message instead, or the loading just times out. I have tried on all different devices and have never been able to. Have also asked the forum moderators and have had no resolution. Good luck in TOTM.

    Yellow Labidochromis cichlid

    Mine do both. All African cichlids require rocks and caves to be happy as this is what best replicates their natural environment. It is best for them if you provide some places for them to hide if they feel threatened or need shelter.

    Increase filtration

    The FX6 will definitely help you, but as Byron said it isn't a replacement for water changes. But is really is a beast of a filter - I have an FX6 and a 306 on my 60 gallon African tank. I had to go overseas for 5 weeks last year, so that meant no water changes, just 3 weekly feeds when my...

    Copepods during cycling, 90% water change!???

    Hey Tom :) I would stick to doing a big water change at the end of a new cycle. This is the best way to provide a happy and healthy environment for your new fishy friends. If you're worried about losing too many of your copepods, I wouldn't stress about it. You won't be able to get all of them...

    Increase filtration

    I would remove the smallest of your canisters and replace it with something like a fluval FX6 - they are great for African tanks. While the new filter is getting established with good bacteria, the existing filter (either the 405 or 406) should be able to handle the extra load - but just in...

    I'm going to get lynched !

    Also - what filter are you running on this tank? African cichlids require really efficient filtration and high water flow as they are messy fish. I would recommend a good quality canister such as a fluval FX6. You will also need to do large, regular water changes - 60% minimum each week. Can...
