  1. Default The rest of my profiles :P

    I made a bunch of profiles a while back for in case I needed them, so I've decided to share the love ;)

    Scientific Name:Labeotropheus fuelleborni
    Common Name(s): Fulleborni mbuna
    Size:5-7 inches
    Diet:Most fish foods, but as with all Mbunas, NO WORMS
    Water Parameters:Hard (7.5-8.5)
    Natural location: Lake Malawi in Africa
    Temperament: Aggressive, but nothing special for a Malawi
    Tank-mates: other Malawi, a group of other Fullebornis is best.
    Minimum Tank Size: at least 55 gallons (4')

    Overview: This magnificent African cichlid does best when in groups with a large amount of rock-work for them to establish territory. Keep 2 females to a male, or the males will kill the females. They are best kept in larger group of African cichlids, so that the aggression is spread out across the group.

    Common Name(s): Pumpkinseed
    Scientific Name: Lepomis gibbosus
    Size: 13", 6" is more common
    Diet: Worms, pellets, danios, anything that fits in their mouth.
    pH Range: 6.7-7.6
    Temperature Range:60-77 Fahrenheit
    Natural location: North American lakes and rivers
    Temperament: Not as aggressive as many of its relatives, still quite territorial.
    Tank-mates: Other similarly sized natives, Bluegills, rock bass ext.
    Minimum Tank Size: 55 gallon or a 40 breeder

    A lot like cold water convict cichlid when It comes to care, these fish breed quite readily. A native of North America, these fish may be illegal in your area, so make sure to check your local laws! Otherwise, they are pretty much cichlids in behavior and care, a very personable fish who is great for a beginner to native fish.

    Scientific Name: Carassium auratus
    Common Name(s): Ranchu, goldfish
    Size: can get to 1', but expect around 6" in aquaria
    Diet: goldfish pellets, goldfish flakes
    pH Range: 7.5 is optimal.
    Temperature Range: 64-76
    Natural location: Bred in Japan for lacking a top fin
    Temperament: Impossibly peaceful, but are omnivorous
    Tank-mates: Nothing too fast (danios, other goldfish) and nothing guppy sized. Other ranchus are best
    Minimum Tank Size: 35 gallons for a specimen, 20 gallons for each ranchu after that

    A nice fish, bred for lacking a top fin. However, they are bad at competing for food and are prone to swimbladder disorders. An adorable fish, full of personality, and possibly the king of goldfish, but somewhat delicate, only for the intermediate or experienced keeper.

    Scientific Name: Colisa lalia
    Common Name(s): Dwarf gourami
    Size: 2 inches, sometimes 3
    Diet: Will accept flake
    pH Range: neutral is best
    Temperature Range: 75-80
    Natural location: India, Ganges river
    Temperament: Can be territorial
    Tank-mates: Most things that won't eat it or it's fins
    Minimum Tank Size: 6 or so for a specimen, 10 for a community

    This great little fish is good for someone who is looking for a feature for their mini-tank. Overall, a nice fish to keep. HOWEVER, they are prone to disease, so have a couple basic medications ready. Known to have some troubles acclimating, be prepared to acclimate slowly.

    More coming in later!

    Scientific name of all goldfish sp. They're kind of like dogs, it's all the same species. Might have a typo in there though :P
