:) HI everyone! I am Michelle from Hong Kong.
I got this fish 2.5years ago , but I only knew this fish is a kind of Cichlids.
Actually , What kind of cichlid is this?

Here are some photos of my fish~ :wink:

2.5 years before, I bought these fish and a 14" tank from the shop .
Unfortunately,they died because of some illness, except the fish which I circled.


2weeks before, I purchased a bigger tank(24") with filters.






I think that the colour of my fish is not bright enough...How can I improve this condition?
Thank you for your help! :thumb:
P.S. Sorry for my poor English...

Yep M.lombardoi http://www.cichlid-forum.com/profiles/s ... php?id=798

Lighting looks bright enough or maybe too bright. Darker substrate/background/rocks/decore and larger tank would bring out colours more.

Looks rather chubby.
Maybe cut back on feeding too.

All the best James

:lol: Thanks, james
She is quite fat as my dad always feed her (at least 3times per day ~_~, with some dry prawn)
Another question that I want to know is :
If I want to acquire some new fish in my tank, which type of Cichlids is suitable?
Can you give me some suggestions?
THZ! :p

A single lombardoi in that small tank will prob kill anything else you add. To keep any Mbuna you really need a bigger tank, so you can get the numbers high enough to spread agression.
Smallest tank I would try a group of lombardoi in is a 48" long tank and at least 8 or even 24, it being a large and particularly agressive Mbuna species.

Rather like the species article says. :wink:
