I was just wondering if anyone else on here had a black belt cichlid. I have a beautiful what I think is a male about 10" long but I can't figure out how to add pics on this site.

Hey, welcome to the forum!
I'm sure we'd all love to see some pics of your blackbelt. 8)

For posting pics, go to www.photobucket.com or a similar free hosting site.
You'll need to register (free), then create an album. You'll see some blank fields on the right side of the screen where it prompts you to upload some pics. Just hit browse and find the files on your hard drive, then click 'upload' or 'submit' (whatever it tells you to do), and then your pics will appear there. After that, click on the IMG field you see below the uploaded pics, which will automatically copy the link onto your clipboard. Go to your post here on the forum, right click and hit 'paste', and then you'll see the
appear in your post. Always a good idea to preview your post before submitting it here on the forum; just to make sure the correct pic is displayed to your liking.

Hope that makes sense. :wink:

thanks gage, this fish is VERY aggresive hence no tank mates. He doesn't even like the filter tubes or heater in there and has broke one of each.

is he really that aggressive? i have aggressive fish (flowerhorns), is he pretty comparable to them? *** heard BB are pretty bad, but i have to different Vieja and they arent so i was starting to wonder, i didnt think 2 fish in the same genus could be so different, but i guess i should have thought harder, after all, Robertsoni and Midas are in the same genus to right? LOL thanx.

Yes he is, so far I've had another BB in the dead in a week, Oscar twice as big as him dead in 2 days, pleco dead as soon as I put him in, Buttikofri(?) gone. If you are anywhere near the glass he will attack where you can actually hear his teeth hit the glass.
