Cichlids

Hi everyone,

I am planning to start my first African Cichlid tank. I am doing extensive research so that I can be informed on which specific species to start with, their needs, water parameters, food, aqua scape, etc.

My question is, which is the smallest species from the African Cichlids that I can buy? And what is the smallest tank size I can get for that particualr species?

Your input will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Maybe ich?

So i have discovered this morning that my two silver dollars in my fish tank have white ich like spots on them. I think it might just be oxygen bubbles stuck to them but idk. So i raised the temperature of the aquarium, put in aquarium salt and ich treatment, and turned off all the lights in the room. Does anyone have any advice on beating ich? If so that would be great! Thank you!

Live Aquatic Plants

Hi, I have been adding plants to my tank slowly for a while now. No matter how hard I try it seems i cant maintain them and keep them healthy. I use flourish and CO2 booster but it doesn't seem to help. Any advice or tips on how to keep aquatic plants healthy would be great. THANK YOU!
