I have six salvinis, 2 males and maybe four females. one pair is quite a bit larger than the other four fish. Anyway, they are in a tank with convicts angels, clown loaches, and two red head cichlids.T he largest male is the dominant fish in the tank but hes no killer except with feeder fish and insects. When he gets his treats he is deadly. Right now the 2 larger females seem to have territories at each end of the tank. The adult male still has full control though. I will post more here when they breed. They are stunning fish. id reccomend them to anyone interested in keeping cichlids

I have a texas cichlid which is now about 7 yrs. old and 10" long absolutely beautiful. blue dots all over him. looking at him I would describe him to be velvety as opposed to scaley. one heck of a dog like personality. he lives alone in a 100 gal. tank and he will follow me back and forth along it. sometimes i think he wants me to rub his belly.

I HAVE 3 SILVER ANGELFISH AND ONE SOLID BLACK. THE BLACK ONE AND THE SILVER ARE RAISING THEIR SECOND BATCH OF FRY IN MY 38 GALLON TANK. I ALSO HAVE 2 ALGE EATERS ( SUCKERS) THE BREEDING PAIR ARE MAKING ALL THE OTHER FISH STAY IN THE CORNER OF THE TANK. THE FIRST BATCH OF FRY DIED AND WAS EATEN BY THE MOTHER CAUSE I MOVED THEM IN ONE OF THOSE NET BOX THINGS YOU HANG INSIDE THE TANK FOR SMALL FRY, AND SHE ATE RIGHT THROUGH THE NET. 3 WEEKS LATER I NOTICED ANOTHER BATCH. THIS TIME I DECIDED TO LEAVE THEM WITH THE PARENTS AND THEY ARE BEING VERY OVER PROTECTIVE.I ALSO NOTICE THAT SOME OF THE FRY ARE STARTING TO SWIM ON THEIR OWN BUT THE PARENTS WILL PUT THEM IN THEIR MOUTH THEN BACK ON THE LEAF. SO BEFORE LONG ALL OF THEM WILL BE SWIMMING, CAN THEY GET SUCKED INTO THE FILTER TUBE OR EATEN BY THE OTHER ANGELS CAUSE THE PARENTS CAN NOT KEEP WATCH OVER ALL OF THEM.

my livingston is the king of my tank...granted the tank is still new. I have 2 zebras,1 african hap,1 african jewell and 1 algae eater. none of the fish mess with the algae for he is the biggest of the tank...then again he just hangs out in a cave a the bottom of the tank.

i have about twenty of these little suckers.they are really easy to take care of. i started out with 2 eletric yellow cichlids and one blue one. i suppose the fish cross breed because the fish i have now are half blue half yellow. and these fish are about a year old now and there mating with each other.
so i have a lot of these fish im willing to sell. and i did absolutly nothing to have these fish breed. in the same tank i have to blue gills and a pleco. and i have no problems with agression, but the cichlids i have now are only like a inch long and the stand right up to the big blue gill i have.

i have a goldfish that is a foot and a half long with two firemouths that are also a foot and a half long. I used to have another firemouth and an oscar that were around 8 inches long, but my goldfish swallowed them. I know it sounds hard to believe, but its true!

I have a few electric yellows. The female was awesome. Always played swimming in circles. Great movement in the tank. Sadly she died for no apparent reason. The male is a jerk. He bullies all the other fish. His lower jaw turns purple at times making him look like he needs a shave. He fights with my ahli. I am about to move him and the ahli into a tank together so they can leave the peaceful fish alone.

I have 4 Angel Fish and I love them very much. 1 is my veteran angel, he is huge, about 7.5 inches long. I just recently got him some buddies, 3 med. sized angels of differnt colors. These are amazingly smart fish with heart and brains!!! They will eat you out of house and home if you let them!!

Angel fish are the most beautiful elegant fresh water fish I know of, They tend to be more agressive especially when they have eggs to protect. They are definately not the easiest fish to breed.
