    Very Sick Ptychochromis Oligacanthus

    This fish is incredible emaciated despite eating food on a regular basis. He was these long thread-like patches all over his body and on his fins. Not really sure what they are, some of them are as long as 1.5 cms. This all happened rather suddenly even though nothing has been added to the tank...

    Thinking About It...

    I'll be getting a 3 foot tank soon, at 33 gallons. Was wondering if it was possible to do African cichlids in a tank of this size? If so, suggestions are appreciated as I'm not familiar with Africa cichlids at ALL lol.

    Cichlid Parental Care

    Wow. All I can say. For 2 days the parents of my Ptychochromis oligacanthus eggs were ever diligent in keeping their babies safe. Against all odds. I saw Mom slamming a fish twice her size into the sand repeatedly. I saw her beat the !@$# out of several other fish, whether larger or smaller. Dad...

    Ptychochromis Oligacanthus Laid Eggs!

    I don't believe they have a common name. They're an endangered species from Madagascar, and I got them all from a great out of town friend. They aren't wild caught fish as far as I know, but they are close to it.

    Ptychochromis Oligacanthus Laid Eggs!

    Thanks fo the comments. This morning the mother is VERY aggressive. She's hitting everyone hard who gets too close. I can almost hear the impacts. She's even attacking the dominant male, and winning. What an amazing fish! Most of the eggs look like they're still there. I figured out why both...

    Possible Ich

    No one? Okay, how about this question: I know I don't have to use medications for ich, if indeed it is ich. So, after raising the temperature, how many tsps or tbsps of aquarium salt should I use per gallon?

    Possible Ich

    Hey all. I just looked at my fish this morning, and most of them have these little white things that look like parasites on their fins. Very small, they look like grains of sand. On one fish, on the tail, they're like little cylinders. I have never had ich in my tank before, so I just want to...
