I bought 5 Kribs about 4 months ago and these little beauties are crazy spawners. Two of them paired up and bred in my 20 gallon community tank. Even thought they don't tolerate other fish around their babies, they aren't overly aggressive. They had 2 batches before the female killed the male and then ate the babies. But the two batches of babies were almost big enough to not be sucked into her mouth right when she ate them. But overall this is a fish that I would definitely recommend!

I have 2 Jack Dempseys, best fish in the world. Finally figured out which was the male after a year. Three days ago I looked in my tank and there are almost 500 babies in there. Guess how shocked I was. Whats a girl to do with all those babies. I have 5 tanks already two 55 gallon, one 30 gallon, and one 20 gallon. Looks like i need to open a pet store.

I got 2 Angelfish, 1 gold and one a black marbled/gold angel. I just got them 4 weeks ago, and the gold angel grew a few inches. They like dried tubifex worms, as well as granule. Their tankmates are 3 mollies, 4 platies, 1 Spotted Rafael catfish, Chinese Algea Eater, and 2 Black Khulii Loaches. They have not gotten aggressive at all and are extremely placid and swim up and downwards and spin while going up.

We have 2 Jack Dempsey, got them both a few months ago at roughly an inch and a half each. Now the one that was slightly bigger is getting really big while the other one hasn't grown much. The big one chases the little one a lot so the little ones always hiding. We've been unsuccessful adding any fish to the tank. They do have amazing color, though!

My Jack Dempsey was one of my favorite fish. It was dark all the time had lot's of shiny blue scales across it's body, face, and fins and had a bit of red on the tip of it's dorsal fin. It just looks awesome when flaring against my other cichlids. A very tough and cool fish!

Hello everyone in the aquarium hobby business. I'm a proud owner of a 200 gallon Oceanic Show tank will the following fishes: four blood parrots, two silver arowanas, three silver scats, two silver dollars, three clown loach, five red tail sharks, three rainbow sharks, opaline gourami, golden gourami and a plecostamus. Everybody is approximately the same sizes except for the plecostamus and silver arowanas. The water chemistry is as follows: pH-7.4, nitrite-0, ammonia-0, nitrate-10. Feeding includes freeze-dried blood worms, Omega One super color floating pellets, and on occasion as a treat frozen Hikari blood worms. Water changes are accomplished by doing a twenty-five to thirty percent of water every month. Filtration Emperor 400, four Ehiem 2217 in line, four 2215 in line, 3 Maxi-Jet 1200 and 3 Maxi-Jet 1000 for circulation. Additionally using Tetratec DW96-2 to run a 48 inch. bubble wand. Temperature is set at 82 degrees farenheit. For lighting I used four 10,000K and two 50/50 bulbs. Decorations consist of clay pots, African drift wood anchored down by slate, tall long artificial plants, and many hiding places too. I hope you enjoy reading this.

I must have been one of the unlucky pet owners because my fish is NOT shy and NOT calm! He's extremely agressive! The last time I cleaned the algae out of his tank, he bit my finger and latched on! He didn't let go! And I just fed him not even an hour earlier! Nevertheless, I still love Skittles.

the compressed cichlid grows very slow and should be kept in a tank where it is not bullied until able to fend for itself.

I recently got three electric yellows and ive found that one of those is extremely territorial and they all love to borrow, they have dug caves in the sand around most of my rocks.
