#1516 Best Size Tank For Breeding Blue Ahli

Posted by Sinbad52 on 03 January 2007 - 10:55 AM in Lake Malawi Cichlids

I am thinking about trying to breed my male blue ahli. What is the best size tank for this. I now have a 75 gallon with 1-8" albino tiger oscar, 1-4" blue ahli, 1-2" red peacock, 1-3.5" assorted petsmart cichlid.

I am not too familiar with a Tiger Oscar, but if it is a regular Oscar as I know it, your other fish will not survive in there long.

A 75 gallon is more than enough to breed Blue Ahli.
That's what I have, but that fish will soon be food for your Oscar.

#1515 Malawi Cichlids - Salt or Not?

Posted by Sinbad52 on 03 January 2007 - 10:20 AM in Lake Malawi Cichlids

I have a variety of Malawi cichlids.
Electric Yellow Labs, P Kennyi to name a few.
I have had them since May of 2006 with no problems.
I am trying to end an age old controversy regarding salt use on Malawi Cichlids.
It is my understanding that Malawi is a fresh water lake, not brackish, and it contains mineral salts, not sodium chloride.
First question: Is that true?
If it is true and my fish are NOT wild caught, do they really need salt as we know it, or is it more Cichlid Lake Salt that they require which is more mineral than sodium?
The reason I ask is because I have had them on Cichlid Lake Salt and people are trying to get me to change to aquarium salt..
