    I'm not sure if they will breed, but my guess is yes they can, because same species can breed.

I have a 50litre tank and am looking at these wonderful fish and was wondering: How many do I get? Do they go well with bristlenose catfish? How aggressive are they? what cheap fish do they go well with? Thanks everybody!! Sincerely Aiden

    Heya Aiden, if you add your aquarium where it says 'Enter a Freshwater Aquarium' (in the care parameters just below the intro) you will get the 'Fish Finder'. This cool tool let's you compare fish that are compatible and work with your tank.

    For a 50 L, 2 or 3 breeding pairs would work great. I have a single one with 4 cherry barbs, an angelfish, a red fin shark, clown loach, and a bristle nose pleco. I have had no problems. They have a pretty mild temperament and are a very hardy and nice fish. I wouldn't get crabs ,shrimp etc though. They would get along well with the catfish, unless it is twice the size, and has a temperament. Tiger barbs are cheap and playful, especially in a school of 5 to 8. They are also very colorful, and have a perfect match for temperament with the cichlid.

I have a question, I have 2 jack Dempseys, one male and one female. They have spawned 3 times since I have owned them (5 years) they just had babies 2 weeks ago and I noticed the male is being very aggressive to the female, so much she has an open wound. I went to the pet store to get her medicine but what do I do? He has never done this to her.. I don't want anything to happen as I love them both. They're both very beautiful and I really need advise/help. Thanks

    You need to take the babies out and put them in separate tank. He is doing it to try to get to the babies he wants to eat them.

Do not buy jelly bean, love heart, or other modified/dyed blood parrots. They have a shorter life expectancy and are often inhumanely modified. (love hearts tails are amputated at a young age, jelly bean and other dyed fish have a shorter life expectancy due to the dye. ) new owners be warned. Do your research.

I have had my Altums for almost a year know. I got 8 altums. They eat and grow nicely. The largest is about 200mm high now. The tank is 570 liters. It will be intresting to see if the tank is to small when they paire out. The largest Altum has started to become territorial. The terrjtory is about 1/3 of the tank. I will test with more roots and plants to see if the teritory shrinks. Anyone have Experians of Altum teritories?

My Texas cichlids have been such a rewarding pet. They are very social and curious. They get very excited and attentive at feeding times and are a lot of fun. Their physical attributes and color is stunning. I have never seen aggression from mine. They are housed in a 79 gal tank with plecs, 2 little catfish, a warmouth, and 3 orange spotted sunfish.

I have a 5-6 inch parrot ciclid and convert to a deep orange to a mild yellow once I turn lights on. What's up? There is another parrot ciclid that 4-5 inches that the same color all day. Could they be 'mating'? Of course they pick the gravel all day and disbrute it around the tank. Thanks Randall

    They could be mating, all that rock cleaning is an indication of that. But many Blood Parrot Cichlids will change color with age as well, this is presumably because of  the Midas or Red Devil Cichlid parentage. Both of these cichlid species are known to change coloration as they mature.

I have two oscars, two red belly pacus, two jack dempseys, one black banded leporinus, one pufferfish, and one pleco in a ten gallon tank and they are doing fine! The oscars will eat anything that can fit in their mouth. Happy fish keeping!

    I sincerely hope you have something along the lines of a 900 gallon tank for when EVERY SINGLE FISH IN THAT TANK OUTGROWS IT!

My rainbows spawned yesterday (30/4/12) and it seems the female is doing all the hard graft whilst tthe male is standing gaurd and casually chasing other fish away from the female and eggs. the female certainly puts the male in his place when his attention drops slightly. I've bred these fish many times over the years and I find them amazing little characters in everey way
