I read that they are extremely fragile the first 2 weeks. Well they made through week 1. I usually do a 20-30% water change every week but I'm a little nervous to do it before the 2 weeks are up just...

Also I put 1 tbsp of aquarium salt per 5 gallons in my big tank, turned up the heat and turned out the lights. Will this stop the spread if it is? I don't want to treat the whole tank with meds if...

I guess I could say none of the above. I changed him tanks and gave him a dose of Clout. It might be all the edges of his scales that are turning up. It looks like this guy ...

I actually added a new big dual filter at the same time but left my other filter running as well. I always rinse the filters in the dirty water before adding it to the tank. Could the new filter be...

I had 11 cichlids in a 55 gallon (8 yellow labs and 3 cobalt blues zebras). One of the labs became alpha and kept harassing a couple of the labs so I thought I'd over stock so I got 3 kenyis and 2...

The only pet store in this small city only has one aquarium with "assorted cichlids" so I did the best I could without knowing what I was buying and a little lack of knowledge on my end. Anyway I...
