I'm sure that this is a common theme, but man-oh-man I really wish I'd researched a lot more rather than just relying on the 'expertise' of the guy at pet smart. But now I'm smarter (sort-of) and wiser (ummmmmm) and maybe even better looking (wishful thinking)?
Anyways, just wanted to say hi and post a couple of questions.
I have 2 tanks right now. One 30G with a 6 guppies, 10 neons, a sunburst platty, 1 yellow pleco and a dwarf frog. The second tank is a 90G Cichlid tank with 10 various kinds.
I first wanted to say thanks for all of the great advice I've gotten. I just bought a Python and it's been a LIFE-SAVER. I can't believe I didn't know about them! Water changes are super easy now. Second, my Cichlid tank is just now at the tail end of an algae bloom. Once again, my initial panic (OH MY GOD, QUICK, CHANGE ALL OF THE WATER!!!) was assuaged by reading these posts and with the help of my new python and a bunch of old blankets it's all coming to an end after 3 days.
So once again....thanks!
On to my question. My Cichlid tank is great. But I have no idea what kind of Cichlids I have in there! I'd really like to catalog them so that a) I know what I can add and b) I don't feel dumb when asked by the fish store guy.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a website that I can use to help me catalog them? I understand that my success will be spotty at best, but if I can identify some at least, then I'd feel better rather than posting pics and asking for help on all of them!!
Anyways, thanks again and cheerio!
