Luis,

Hard to say, but likely it is two females.

Re: Chaetobranchus Flaviscens

Hi hiplecoman, Chaetobranchus flavescens sounds like a fun one to work with. They do get fairly large, 7+ inches or so, and as you have probably noticed they have a large mouth. The good news is they are a filter feeder and by providing plankton type foods it will increase your success with this spe...

Re: xenotilapia papilio tembwe

Hi Paul, It don't think that the Xeno's; flavipinnis & spilopterus, pair up for life in the wild. When they are spawning there are many pairs spawning in the same area, and they are not sure if they spawn seasonaly; or year round, because, in these off times, they can school up in large groups a...

Re: Algae Eaters

Hi Haibane, Unfortunately I do not know my algae eaters. But I do know if I cut the back light, and feed lighter, that less algae will appear. And cleaning your glass should be part of your regular maintenance chores, only take a little extra to wipe your glass down, when you do your water change, s...

Re: Shell Dwellers Which Naturally Co-Inhabit an Area

Hi Zachary, Right here on Cichlid Room Companion you can look up a species, and there is a tab for location, and click on that and then there is a tab for species found at this location. But, keep in mind, just because these fish are found all at one site, does not mean they would be compatible. The...

Re: Tropheus swolleness

Hi Adrian,

It so hard to diagnose fish, it certainly appears to be bloated up, but if it has had this condition for awhile and it is still alive, it hard to say.

I wish I could be more specific, but it is just really difficult to say.

Re: Long Winded Stocking Question

Hi Ad Johnson, I do think larger tanks are easier to maintain, smaller tanks can be more tedious, but it is the life of a fishkeeper. With a tank that size you do have a lot of options, and the issue with all male tanks is getting the fish to color up. You could have multiple males of the same speci...

Re: Stocking please help

Hi PuiEdylie, I think you have a pretty good list there. The only think I might suggest is to switch out a few of the Aulonocara, and swap them out with some Aulonocara jacobfreibergi. Peacocks can be quite timid sometimes in these situations, and don't show their potential color, but the Jakes are ...
