There is an article linked below my signature on the life cycle and treatment of ich if you need it.

I take it you're referring to cichlids for a beginner?

What size tank do you have?

Are there any fish at all in it now?

How long has it been set up?

Your first concern is properly cycling the tank before adding the fish you plan to keep long term. If you don't, it can be very stressful on your fish and if it doesn't kill them now, it can do long term damage to internal organs.

Let's get the tank size and more info on what you want from the tank (colour, breeding, etc) and I'll try to help you get it back up and running again. :thumb:

You're rather limited in that size tank.

What are the dimensions? The "footprint" of the tank is all that's really important to most cichlids - they don't use the upper portion of the water column.

Once we get the measurements, it will be easier to lead you in the right direction, but I would guess that you're probably going to need to go with some of the shelldwellers from Lake Tanganyika, or some of the South American dwarves.
