    Sorry, one more question to add to previous post:

    More reading, and Double Red Cacaruoides seem to be the same fish as Cockatoo cichlids. Looks as though full grown Amano shrimp will be OK, small...

    So, the QT is set-up, just need to add the seeded sponge from the main tank. Visited my LFS today - GBRs & Bolivian Rams, which are often available. But also have some very nice looking fish listed...

    Makes sense - I was just wondering because so many sources say they can die so easily early on. Next stop is the LFS to see what species they have available, or can get. If anyone has any feedback...

    Colourful female Pearl Gourami?

    Eight months ago I bought two young pearl gouramis, a male and a female. They've more than doubled their size, and the male is definitely a male. Colourful, long flowing fins, just like photos on...
