#183 German Red Peacock

Posted by Astarte66 on 23 March 2004 - 01:20 AM in Introductions

Wow cool man. Glad to know its a new forum. So um, the Roman Pilars.....
Well, I bought them at Pet Smart of all places, sometimes Petco carries them also.
If ya can not find them, let me know I will be happy to look for them here and send them to you. The large one was not cheap though. I think it ran me about $40 then the little ones, 4 in all were about $8-$12 a peice. :huh:
Maybe. Anyhow I can take a look and see whats up with the decorations for ya if you have no luck I mean.
Have you looked on e-bay at all for fish tank decorations? Maybe there are some there?
Wednesday I pick up the discus fish. Will take pics and post them real soon here.

I promise to post pics later nonight! They look fantastic in the Roman tank. They have settled in quite nicely. :D
I couldn't be happier. Friday I pick up some beautiful disk fish and will post pics of them also.
Seems the kids are swimmin nicely in their new habitat. I will keep ya all posted. I have a skunk cat in here with them and they seem to not mind him at all. I was a little concerned they would beat him up.
Stay tuned for awesome digital pics of the newbies! ;) Pics later this evening!

#168 Hello I am new to this board.

I bought 3 new cichlids yesterday. They are beautiful. As soon as I house them in the roman tank, I will hook everyone up with pics. :D
I have not had this type of fish before, they look exactly like the German Reds, but they are called, Baenschi Cichlid. It looks kind of like an orange baenschi or a Greman peacock. And 2 Dameson Cichlids. When I get them home Tuesday night or Wednesday morning, I will post some pics indeed.
I am debating some very beautiful disk fish in the ocean decor bowfront tank.
I am interested in knowing what you all think of the disk fish.
I miss my Pink Convict Cichlid, but it is so exciting to be setting up not one but now 2 tanks. With my Pink Convict Cichlid, I was able to mix in a school of Large Danio, Algee Eaters, and Clown Loaches, and one skunk catfish who when I bought him I thought was a brown loach. I have a feeling with the new cichlids I am buying....I may have to put them in another tank all together.
We shall see though.

#159 Hello I am new to this board.

:( I wish I were joining the group under brighter circumstances. I just discovered this site a little too late I guess.
I had been fighting with my convict cichlid for 3 days to keep him alive.
Tonight he was suffering, I knew he was going to go, at 11 pm he passed on, an hour later he came back to life. Weird huh? Well here it is about 3 am I just gave him the ole flush. I had him for 5 yrs. Playful lil bugger, but he was so territorial I could not have many fish in the tank with him.
I have no clue what got him so ill so quick. Outside of his hormonal redish coloring he gets when he would stress out or get a lil friskey, he had what almost looked like burns. He bloated real fast, fought real hard, and well he lost the battle.
So yeah I was attached to my lil "Pinkey"
I am setting up a new tank this weekend. Will let it cycle for a week or so before I add any fish to the tank.
I am looking to get more cichlids.
Some I have considered, I cant sem to make up my mind on.....
Peacock, Firemouth, Texas, Red Parrot cichlids. Havin a hard time choosing what to get vs what will work with other fish.
If anyone have any suggestions please post a reply here, or feel free to mail me back.
Thanks so much!
I have included a pic of Pinkey He was about 4" long and very active. You can see in the picture where he changes color when very active. He was a very spoiled fish. Wish I had some better pics of him. I will miss the lil bugger though. He was my buddy.
