    As Compass said, do they need to be (neon) tetras at all? I'm not aware of any characin whose breeding could be considered very easy under aquarium conditions.

    It's generally harder to relate to things less similar to ourselves, cats and dogs beating fish by a good margin. That being said, there's a little honey gourami in my tank I'm very fond of. The fish...

    Superficially it does look like a blue heron, but note the differences in the color and anatomy of especially the head and neck.

    Thanks a lot both of you. Whether they're breeding or not- that's what I'm trying to verify right now. It might be that the breeding cichlids she described were a different lot.

    I'd totally agree with you - my acquaintance said they were breeding though, and johanni females are yellow. That leaves me stumped.

    African cichlid ID

    Can anyone ID these? I'm selling them on behalf of an acquaintance, but I don't know what they are. I'm sure they're really common but I'm equally terrible with african cichlids.

    Is this a saltwater tank? Planarians move smoothly, think of a little slug. Copepods tend to be quite jerky in motion.
