  1. General Aquaria Discussion
    So I am currently cycling a 29 gallon tank. I used to, 6-7+ years ago, be very into the hobby with several Malawi/Mbuna tanks. Then I got married, had kids, and sold everything cause life was so busy. Now I am getting back into the hobby and going back to my love of cichlids. And I don't really...
  2. General African Cichlid Discussion
    Hello everyone! This is my first time posting on Cichlid-Forum, although I’ve greatly benefited from this community for many years. I’d really appreciate some tank stocking advice. I’m setting up a new (to me) 120g aquarium (48” x 24” x 24”), and I’d love to setup a frontosa species tank with...
  3. South American Cichlids
    I have fallen in love with the look of severums for a little over a year now and my 6 foot 125 gallon only has a small 6 or so inch common pleco remaining in it. It has one Fluval fx4 as filtration and a mostly black sand substrate with some eco complete from a past scape mixed in. I was...
  4. Lake Tanganyika Species
    I’ve now kept my colony of 14 tropheus duboisi maswa for a little over a month with great success. My aquarium is 75 gallons, 4 foot by 18 inches. They’ve colored up considerably from when I first got them and have gotten slightly bigger. So far I have not dealt with any bloat or deaths, but I...
  5. Lake Malawi Species
    Hello all, I recently picked up a 120g (4x2x2) plumbed with 2 FX6’s and sand substrate that is currently cycling. I would like to try my first mbuna tank. Current water parameters out of the well are: pH - 8.2 alkalinity - 8 to 9 drops hardness - less than 1 drop (I plan to add epsom salts to...

  8. Central American Cichlids
    Hello all. I currently have a 55 gallon planted tank housing 1 juvenile (4") firemouth and 10 juvenile (1 1/2" - 2 1/2") tiger barbs. I'm just wondering where to go from here. I know they will still grow but I would like at least some compatible bottom feeders, and maybe another school if there...
  9. Central American Cichlids
    If y'all were to be gifted a new 150g tank what would you do this time around? Big single show piece (Dovii)? Mated Pair, aggressive or larger cichlids(Jaguar, Mota, Midas, Red Devil, Grammode)?

  11. Aquarium Setup
    Hi! I want to chat about the best size tank. I have a large wall in my dining room that I want to put a tank on (or in!). I'll most likely build my own stand out of 2x4's and plywood depending on the size of the tank I go with. What are the pros and cons of the different volume 6 foot tanks...
  12. Lake Malawi Species
    Thank you in advance for looking at my post. I have been successful with live bearers in this 46 bowfront tank. Now I'm moving those fish over to another tank so I can convert this tank into a African dwarf mbuna tank. I want my tank to be spices specific. I've chosen Pseudotropheus saulosi ...
