So after a 20year hiatus from the hobby I setup a 75 geo tank. 4 Heckelii, 4 geophagus in the Surinamensis complex.

just sharing in their spectacular beauty!

A bit of silliness

The past few days have been an absolute disaster in fish-keeping, flooding things, digging through tanks to catch very dodgy fish, rushing around with hoses and buckets, cleaning sponge filters, etc.

I've finally found a nail polish that stands up to it all... So if you, like me, enjoy a little nail color and a lot of fish keeping, I wholeheartedly recommend the Mineral Fusion brand of polish, provided you can keep your hands out of a tank long enough to let it dry.

German Blue Rams - water parameters

I'm getting mixed feedback from so many sources on the PH and dGH range for German Blue Rams - I'm hoping that someone here can provide me with an 'official' answer as to what the best water parameters are for these cichlids.


FREE TO CCA MEMBER: Hoplarchus Psittacus

Hi all,

I have a Hoplarchus psittacus (true parrot cichlid) that is in need of a new home. His parrot brother/sister and oscar roommates have decided he is no longer welcome and have really put a beating on him. He/she is still eating, but is a little bit worse for wear with some torn fins and missing scales. It should heal up just fine in a calmer environment.

Let me know if you are a CCA member and could provide a comfortable home for it. I've raised it from 2" from Jeff Rapps stock. It is now around 6-7". I will be keeping the dominant parrot.
