Thread: Lemon cichlid?

  1. Question Lemon cichlid?

    0 Not allowed!
    i saw a fish i really liked in an LFS like a month ago. It was 20 dollars, it had a body shape like a pike, it was 2" long, and it was bright bright yellow all over like a yellow lab. i really liked it i beilieve they were Lemon Cichlids. Can anybody clearify? Also, i a have a 20 gallon tall, could i put a few of those in there? If so how many? Also, do these fish accept feeder minnows/guppies?

    Sounds like a type of pike cichlid and even the dwarfs need 50g+, do a 20g is not big enough for one.

    Sounds like a Neolamprologus leleupi to me. Tanganykian substrate-spawning fish, minimum tank size 30 gallons, aggressive toward their own kind.

    Any good cichlid flakes or pellets supplemented occaisonally with frozen bloodworms and/or brine shrimp would be fine. They may eat live feeders, but that isn't their natural diet.

    do you think they would if they are the right size?

    Most fish will eat smaller fish if given the opportunity, but feeder guppies from the lfs tend to be a greater health risk for your fish that any potential benefit from using them for live food. They are mass-produced, badly overcrowded, kept in lousy conditions, and IME it's rare to find healthy feeder guppy stock. If you have a tankful of healthy guppies and want/need to cull some fry that's another matter.
