Just starting up my new cichlid tank and I have currently 3 Melanochromis Maingano (sp) between 3-5cm and will get a couple more once the LFS
I just bought a Salmontail catfish and even though he has only been in the tank an hour he is pacing near the heater and filters and now flat and still on the substrate. I understand he is probably stressed but just putting it out there if anyone knows whether they are highly sensitive to anything impaticular?
Tank is 4ft tall, nitrate at 0 Ammonia at 0 temp at 23 Celsius.
I am also aware he will be a very big fish and my first choice was to get 3 pictus cats but the LFS
only had this little guy left and they have a huge display tank which houses a 2.5ft Salmontail catfish and are happy to trade him in once he has grown to big for my home aquarium.
Thank you to everyone in advance.
