Hello

Hello my name is kellie I have been breeding fish for years and just Decided to switch from cichlids and other fish to breeding Calico albino and Brown bristlenose plecos.
I have a 80 and 90 gallon tank set up with Cichlids breeds are red Zebras, german reds lots of sp peacocks and ob sp peacocks white solofi and sp-44s and a few other kinds I got with tanks I bought (all Cichlids for sale)

In a 50g I have a pair of brown bristlenose plecos that are breeding like nuts
In a 50g I have about 50 baby albinos and two Calico babies
In a 40g I have a breeding trio of Calico bristlenose plecos that have eggs now
In a 30g I have 160+ 2 week old baby brown (from the pair) ( hes in eggs again already) with 25% of the Clutch being albino
In a 15g I have ghost shrimp breeding to feed the cichlids
I feed the best live frozen and pellet food for healthy colourful cichlids
The plecos get Cucumber zucchini green kelp sheets and Algae discs I also rotate the baby fish through 4 different tanks with two tanks sitting empty at all times to Allow algae growth
I have a new 90g and 60g I am setting up now the new babies will be going in to the 60g and the older babies will be in the 90g with the baby cichlids
I think that's all of my tanks so far lol

Hi I'm Cindy and I need help! I have a tank with new born cichlids and the tank has become infested with black beard algae. How can I move these babies safely and would it be ok to put them with some older babies about 12 weeks old.

Re black beard Algae

I have had new born german reds in with babies that are a few months older as long as you give the babies lots of plants to hide in they will be fine. As for the black beard Algae I have never had a problem with it I always use a Filtration system that is rated for more gallons than my tank And always have a smaller backup filter running just in case, I also have a air line in all my tanks and in the 3 80+gallons I also have a power head running. Attached is a short video of my breeding tank that is now a show tank because I'm no longer breeding cichlids will send pic of the baby tank next. The babies are all in a 40gallon on till later tonight then they are going into a 90g tank with a Divider with the big albino Algae eaters cichlid babies on one side and the brand new baby Algae eaters on the other side
