  1. rocks

    To be honest with you, these fish are extremely hardy. I would say that you can use just about any type of rock you want.
  2. Best Rocks to use

    any limestone rocks are good ones
  3. Malawi Cichlids - Salt or Not?

    I would use 1 cup of Coralife salt for every 5 gallons of water.
  4. Lake Malawi is close to the ocean too. i am back after so long.... hi all old and new names.
  5. new reef tank

    just want to expose you to my new reef hobby. i have moved on from cichlids, although i still have one tank 55g.
  6. my fish

    all my tanks(well not all of them)
  7. do u love cichlids with their awsome color and activeness? if u do and have a little money to spend on aquariums you should try a reef tank or at least a s/w fish tank. it is awsome!!
  8. lol ok i understand now MAtt
  9. first of all cichlids need hard water so y would u add a water softener? second of all crushed coral may seam ok for african cichlids but it is kinda hard on their mouths because they like to dig and it is sharp. to get the water clear just do a couple of 50% water changes over about a 1 month period. another thing with crushed coral is that u are going to have a heck of a time cleaning it! ill warn u on that one. so give the water changes a try and see if that gets the tank clear ok? glad to help MAtt
  10. convicts

    well when "can i keep convicts with malawi cichlids" you are being to general there are 100s of different types of malawi cichlids... some might be able to live with convicts. but i would say that this is a BIG NO. sry MAtt

  13. stocking 20 gal.

    The yellow fish with black stipes and bars might be a melanichromis auratus. If this is the case get rid of it immediatly. it will destroy all of your other fish. this is only my personal experiance. so you can do what you want. MAtt
  14. Water Changes

    u might have healthy water but this sounds like a horrible schedual to me.... on the other hand i have 2 reef tanks so mabe that is why i change the water so often in my cichlid tank. MAtt
