Copper, you've had cichlid fry though, because that's how you got Malina, right?
Yup, With Malina and her siblings I had to remove the eggs because of my pleco and keep them in net breeders. When the parents raise the babies they will fan the eggs with their fins to keep fungus from growing on them(and eat any that develop fungus). You can feed the babies micro worms and starter foods but the parents sometimes chew food up and spit it out for the fry to eat. Cichlids are the absolute best parents :D

I was pretty young and had no idea what I was doing so not too many survived. I gave some away and kept two. Malina's brother who had gold eyes died at around 4", I didn't know a lot about fish and didn't do nearly enough water changes unfortunately. I've learned so much from this forum, When I joined I was keeping my king betta with Malina and only used distilled water D:

I miss having cichlids, maybe one day when I can afford a bigger tank I'll have them again :) I'd love to do a huge amazon biotype tank
I'd like a tank similar to this where it looks like roots


or if I become filthy rich lol



I finally got a decent photo of my Paradise fish flaring his gill covers, second photo he's flaring his pretty fins.

Haha, we've all come a long way since we joined, haven't we? :)

Castiel looks awesome flaring! He looks almost like a firemouth with an eye on his gill cover.

We sure have lol

And wow, he does have a lot of similarities to a fire mouth XD I can call him my mini cichlid because he sure acts like one until he meets someone tougher, then he's sad and pathetic as he hides in the corner ;-;

Copper, I'd love to do a huge amazon tank like the first one you pictured. Stuff it with discus and huge schools of tetra. That's my goal for when I'm in my 40's and have a stable income and house. I'd hate to have to move a tank like that!

I can imagine how you feel. I don't want to think about moving my 55 gal. Until I get a house I know I'm going to be in for at least 10 years, I'll not be getting any tanks larger than 55 gal.
