  1. Hybrids!!

    I'm sorry because I respect everyone's opinion but who are we to get fish from there natural habitat and play hilter with. If there are hybrids wouldn't it just make the market for pure fish better? Couldn't breeders make a little extra money be selling pure bloods to the dedicated hobbyist's? Or are people to afraid of not having the elaborate "rare" fish that are already out there? I think hybrids would make the breeding community a better commodity.
  2. Hybrids!!

    Here's the first hybrid
  3. stocking 20 gal.

    Also i had a problem with my fish pickin on the plecos'. I had three and two died, but the third was really aggressive, thats why i think it's still alive. A 20 gal. tank is quite small for all those species, i mean the kenyi alone are very aggressive while the labs are mild. Not sure what the others are but if they are from malawi you can count on the same attitude.

    I dunno i have an auratus, kenyi, two yellow labs, zebra, and the dempsey keeps em all in check, but the auratus is a very aggressive fish and so is the zebra. I s your white fish a white socolofi or a albino zebra, check those species profiles out and match them up.
  6. telling the sex

    What i do is type the species of the fish in your search engine and usually a species profile will apear with a list of many other sites.
  7. Hybrids!!

    I have two hybrids the first is a yellow lab and metriaclima zebra (psuedotropheus zebra) or (zebra), and the second is metriaclima estherae (red zebra) and metriaclima zebra (psuedotropheus zebra) or (zebra) . The first are pretty with two distinct colorations with pearl colored vertical bars with a light yellow or light tanish body. The other colors consist of bluish with light vertical bars. The second hybrid is yet to be seen. As soon as the red zebra spits them out and i let them grow a little i promise the pics will come soon, until then please reply whatever queeries you have and ill answer or read your comments.
  8. Water Changes

    It's was originally a reef tank but i converted it to fresh water, also i moved the jd a couple of days ago to my 75 gal. and calmed my zebra down. H e was terrorizing everyone. but everything is gravy now.
  9. what to do for aggressive fish

    what type of fish are they?
  10. Water Changes

    i think thats why my water changes are in-frequent because my tanks arent overstocked. my 29 has a dempsey and two pink convict with fry, and my 75 is a reef tank with eight cichlids and 12 assorted tetras
  11. Sorry it took soo long for me to get back to you guys, i kinda forgot i posted this. But the father isnt a kenyi but is some sort of zebra and the mom is a yellow lab. But now the zebra mated with my red zebra and im anxious to see what comes out, even though they are going to be hybrids.
  12. Sounds like you people dont know how match cichlids up for your tanks. Letting all those pretty fish go to waste.
  13. Jack Dempsey

    tank size has nothin to do with fish growth. my dempsey is in a 30 gal. and is just as big as one in a 150 gal. but anyways i feed mine hikari medium pellets about 7 of them, and red minnows when im on business trips. i also have a pair of pink cinvicts with him, but he doesnt seem to mind them. they had fry and man-o-man there is a lot.
  14. Water Changes

    I only change my 29 gal. once a month (15%) and filter clean every 2 and i change my 75 galonce every 2 months (15%) and filter clean every 4 months and my water is healthy.
