    The 'Sex: Sexual differences' section above gives you a good idea of how to tell the difference between the male and female. As it points out, it is difficult, only once they are mature are your chances are a bit better.

    When they are mature the males will get silver spots on their fin (close to the bum) that is how you tell with any cichlid :)

I had 3 golden severons which I was keeping form 1 week old. They were fine and a few months back one of them I found standing head down. I shifted him in to another tank and tried to save him but could not. Now the second one is in the same situation. But he is responding to me like whenever I go near the tank he comes for food and takes food. Swimming normal for some time and again going back to the same head standing.This time I did not change him from the main tank. My tank is 2 mtrX90 cm x 60 cm and accompanied by other fishes like discuss, scavanger, clowns, mollies etc. Can you suggest any remedy for bringing him back to normal?

I am a real fish lover. i have all kinds but easily love my electric yellows the most. I have 3 large males and 2 small breeding females. i have them in a 5 foot tank and still they continue to fight. I guess its worth it when they started breeding. i now have over 60 electric yellows and still i find no end to the joy they give me.

    Yeah, I love Electric Yellow Cichlids too! I had kept them for several years, and thoroughly enjoyed these active fellows... and they are so pretty!

  • Clarice Brough - 2013-05-03
    Generally the tail fin will grow back, as long as the damage isnt' too severe and into the caudal peduncle.

    I am really sad. My Yellow Cichlid has died. He was so beautiful and up to a couple of days ago in fine form. He started racing up and down and around the front of the tank and was not eating as he usually came to me at feeding time. He shared the tank with another smaller female who he occasionally chased. She seems to be at the top of the tank behind the filter I think to hide from him sometimes. I will take the tank water in to be checked. Also I fed mostly Spirulina Meal sticks and sometimes flakes, What else should they have? He was so knowing and new me. I didn't think I could feel so sad about the loss of a fish, but I do. :-(

I have a Red Empress that is about 4' long. I have been hoping that it is a male for obvious reasons and until about one month ago I thought it was. It is predominantly silver but has the blue sheen over the whole body which I think is getting darker (maybe wishful thinking) and slightly pointed dorsal and anal fins. However about one month ago I found that it had a mouthful of eggs. Now I really don't know....

A very rare find here in Australia, I just picked up 2 of these awesome little guys with another 2 on the way, I got the first 2 at around 6 to 8cm in size and with good food and on schedule water changes and good filtration these 2 have put on 2 to 4cm each within 3 weeks, They are an amazing fish which not many people in OZ can get so i consider myself very lucky to have them. AWESOME UARU!!

    They really are nice looking fish, I'm so happy for you! (and maybe just a little envious...lol)
  • Jack - 2013-09-09
    Hey there, as you said they are difficult to get in Australia. I've heard there are only 4 registered breeders in Oz haha I have 2 17cm uarus, fantastic fish.

We have 4 mooriis in a 75 gal. They're right at a year. Purchased a 125 gallon tank today, I know they'll be happy once we can move them! Love these fish. Very docile, only tank mates are various plecos. They do spook when we approach the tank, and hide in the slate caves we made. Any suggestions on tank mates for these guys...keeping in mind they are extremely easily spooked? I don't want any chance for them to get hurt!

    It would be best to keep them with other cichlids of similar size. They are considered a semi-agressive fish and wouldn't do well with other community fish or other cichlids which are smaller than them. You can try using this Fish Finder application to determine good tankmates. It's helpful because you can put in every parameter of your particular aquarium!

Hi all I have a red devil that has been sitting on the bottom of my tank for the last few months. He comes up for food and comes over to have a look when I go up to the tank. Otherwise he just sits upside down on the bottom of the tank! Can anyone tell me what to do to fix this or is it to late for him?

    That is really strange! Because it's been going on for so long, and he is eating and active when he wants to be, makes me think there may be nothing physically wrong. But it's still really strange:)

Hi everyone, My Red Devil is about 25cm in size, very playful and a pleasure to have. He is white in color with orange fins. As I am residing in Cape Town South Africa do I find it very difficult to get a partner for him. Could anyone help and assist? I am willing to buy. Please respond to you soonest. Thanks.
