I have three tanks (10,26,46) since JAN.1 and in the 46 : 1 pleco 8", 5 gold- 2"-3', 6 all yellow cichlids about 4". I adopted them along with 15 more goldfish and 4 black widow tetras. I keep the others in the other two tanks. Originally all the fish lived together in the 46 gal
I'm learning as I go on how to take care of them and airing on the side of caution so I do water changes often as the tanks cycle.
My concern is that one of the ciclids(not sure of type, they're all a solid yellow) has been acting strange (at least to me!) and hasn't eaten in close to a week. Also a couple days ago cleaned all the rocks from a cave in the tank. I don't know the diference in male or female but this fish is a little paler yellow than the others and has a slight bulge in the forehead. The rest of the fish seem fine, I am in a learning process.
I am testing the water regularly and amstill dealing with high ammonia. I probably need some advice with feeding. I feed twice a day, when I turn the lights on and before I turn them off.
