I saw some in the shop the other day and they looked nice, i was wandering if anyone has anything to warn me of, or advise me before buying?
I read they like... slow moving water, heavily planted tanks, dark substrate, driftwood.
The only thing i dont have is slow moving water, its not fast at all and they can go to calmer areas of the tank away from the water coming in from the filter.
I tested my Ammonia and Nitrite and there both 0ppm.
I read they are a more hardy cichlid but water quality is still essential.
I do a pwc
every 2 weeks but test it every week to check the parameters.
A male and female would be needed im guessing?
I also read they are a peacefull cichlid and wont uproot plants.
They are in a tank with tetra's in the shop and i have black neons & danios so everything seems fine to me.
I have a 20 gal
Rena Filstar XP2 External Filter (my tank is heavily overfiltered, water is clear as day)
Fish : 3 danios, 1 clown pleco, 1 female bristlenose pleco, 3 yoyo loaches, 5 black neons.
