Hey everyone! :) Just wanted to say hello, im new here. I have 2 tanks, one 30 gallon that I use as a quarantine tank, and my 150 gallon that I absolutely love. Right now I have cichlids and gouramis, and I'm hoping to add some more cichlids soon!

Anyways this looks like a great site, hope to talk to you guys soon ^_^

Thanks everyone! ^^ I have...umm im not sure lol. I cycled my tank with a few babies from lfs labeled "assorted baby cichlids' And then I got some free from craigslist...sooo yea. If anyone can identify them that would be amazing lol!

There are 11 fish all together...5 babies, 4 convicts(?) and 2 peacocks(?)

Here are the 4 convicts(?)




The yellow peacock(?) sorry its blurry, he's pretty shy and thats the best I could do without stressing him too much...


The blue peacock(?)


Convicts and the yellow



And the entire setup for those who wanted a pic :) I let my little brother choose some of the decorations, so bear with me for the dragon/castle/etc Rolling Eyes


On a side note...I know the convicts(?) have some fin/tail rot. They actually dont, its just damage from a previous owner when they had an outbreak there. Im adding some melafix to the water in hopes of helping some grow back...

Anyway, Thanks to any/all help!

You have some red jewels, looks like hemichromis guttata. Top pic, top right hand corner is one. 3rd pic in the middle is one....
They like a neutral PH of 7 and can get pretty mean, they are pairing fish they mate for life, they lay eggs on round smooth rocks and are very good parents and will guard their eggs and fry for several weeks after they are free swimming.
