wow, i love the cichlids. have you got a journal for that at all? as i have a 240L tank and im crossed between planted and cichlid, but i guess there is alot of work involved in the cichlid side also. like ph buffering and special substrates etc. but i havent really read up yet.

Thanks yzemann

Nick, the journal can be seen here: http://www.fishforums.net/index.php?showtopic=244990

and what i can say is they are quite easy to look after - just watch out for any signs of bullying (not the occasional chasing around/ fight lol) and any cuts which may become infected.

Nothing special that i do to my tank - extra filtration as they need to be overstocked and they are messy (fluvl 205 & eheim classic 2215 on 180l tank), coral sand as substrate (keeps pH at 8.2) and 50% water changes weekly and... erm ...well thats about it!

One of the reasons why i chose them. ;)

Thanks.

Thanks Sam, i run my CO2 high so that may contribute to it :)

I decided to try a slightly different approach to my photography this time, especially seeing as the fish are going back to MA tommorrow :( Although not many pictures turned out well. These were the best out of 100+ lol
