New Lake Malawi's

Here are my new fishies, my camera doesn't do them justice, but here they are anyway.
And before you ask about the danios and goldies... they are my husbands fault. The Goldies will be moving into a 1500 gallon pond come spring, until then they must share quarters with the cichlids.

There are a total of 6 of them, the yellow lab I have had for a few weeks.

Nice fish! The danios can be dither fish. Tell your husband you need an indoor pond for the goldies. LOL.

An indoor pond is not a possibility with small children in the home and no space for anything. Our entire home has stuff stacked everywhere because its WAY too small for us!
What are dither fish?

LOL sounds like my house, only no kids here. Dither fish are fish that distract the aggressive fish. The are usually faster than the aggressive fish.

Oh yes... well thats why I can't catch them, they are too fast!!! The cichlids are picking on the poor goldies some, but not too bad. I think it will be ok as long as I am diligent about the ammonia levels.

What size is the tank again? You could always put a divider in for the goldies if the tank is large enough.

Well as long as everyone is getting along, it's all good. Keep an eye on aggression if there is any and worry about it if it happens.

The only aggression so far is my yellow lab who I have had a few weeks didn't seem too pleased with the new cichlids at first but seems fine now. I did rearrange the tank a bit before adding them so they would have have equal shots at a cave, I just didn't move the wrecked car decoration (hubby is a mechanic, we love cars, it seemed fitting.) The car wreck is the yellow labs home, but oddly enough he allows all the feeders to move in at night and he goes elsewhere.
