Have had Dorothy for 3 years and presume she is getting close to her full growth. Sure hope so as she is now on her second aquarium and will go into a 5 gallon tank soon. She ? acts like all the ones written about and does give me a chuckle. Her aquarium sits next to my stove on the counter, so she is the first thing I get to interact with in the a.m. with coffee.

I have been breeding this species for a while now. I love them and believe them to be one of the best tropical fish available. The fish are quite agressive but (normally) only towards each other and it never gets too nasty, just a bit of chasing and nudging etc. I notice when I remove a male for breeding the other must re-arrange the ranking order in the tank (Who is most dominant etc) and so when the breeding is over and he is re-introduced there is always a lot of flared fins and tail slapping etc, this only last an hour or so and I have never seen any fish become injured due to this, one of them always seems to back off before it gets that bad. My advice is dont remove them too quickly, watch them and you will see the violence stop as soon as the Alpha male is decided and the rankings are agreed by the other tankmates. After that you will just see the highest ranked fish chasing the others from time to time and they always run away. Good Luck. Steve...

QUICK BREEDING TIP: I have noticed I get better breeding results from choosing a male that is not very high in the ranking order (The one that always runs away and doesnt fight). This is because he will spend more time on the nest than the high ranking males. They normally spend 95% of their time chasing the female and only 5% building. The lower ranking male tends to ignore the female for longer periods of time and puts the nest toghether quicker and better.

(Dont get me wrong he does still chase the female away etc as this is natural).

Steve...

Today I bought a medium sized comet and a medium sized blackmoor. I added them to my tank which was already home to a redcap and a shubunkin. My comet which is yet to be named is very crazy as he was jumping around in the bad desperate to be free. He/She is really slender and beautiful. I enjoy watching my 4 fishes swimming around.

I have 2 yellow cichlids of opposite sex-and one fry- who is about 1/4 in long. There is a numerous amount of rocks of various sizes, and there are 5 or 6 caves of various sizes.
When I started changing the water on a weekly basis about, 40% out at a time, they started breeding- I have been watching them this week and the female just set up a place for her eggs where i cannot see them - but I know she no longer has her eggs in her mouth. There was another female, but she died just recently, I never did find her but when I was looking for her, I found the baby in between some rocks. they have given me alot of enjoyment and are very peaceful with the other cichlids in the tank. I have a 65 gallon plexiglass tank.

My tank is 40 gallons and is inhabited by a Ryukin ("Bling-Bling"), an Oranda ("Potbelly") a Fantail ("Fanny"), and a Mystery Snail. The Ryukin used be completely calico colored but now only her fins are black, orange and white - her hump and belly are almost entirely gold and white. She was the same size as the Oranda but when I got her last April but is now double that size - about the size of an orange. She is also "personality plus", and makes loud smacking noises to beg for food when she sees me come in the room !!
