Haplochromis sp "Ruby Green"

Postby ACartwrong » Tue May 12, 2015 11:33 pm

Hey guys i have had little luck finding reliable information about these fellas so i was hoping to learn more here.

1. How big to they get?
2. How many gallons or dimensions are adequate for say 1 male and 3-4 females?
3. What does their natural habitat consist of? And will Holy Rock be OK?
4. Water parameters (ie. temperature in Fahrenheit, pH, hardness, etc.)
5. Diet?
6. How big do the fish need to be for them to breed? And what do they need in order to successfully breed?
7. Finally what are some reliable, and cheap distributors preferable on the west side of the US?

Don't watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going. Now where can i put my next tank?
