I'm thinking about getting some nics, always been very interested in them but could never find them where I live. I found out today that my lfs will order fish for me, which is pretty awesome. I was wondering how many I should order to hope for a pair? I was thinking three or four would hopefully do it. This will be my first experience with nics.
I have found (unless they are Convicts) that when wanting to get a pair of a cichlid the best thing to do is get at least 6 (I go with 8 juvies) and let them do their thing. Nics are one of the species of CA cichlid that are hard to sex when young. Nics are very beautiful and fun fish to keep. :thumb:
