Cichlid TalkPlease post pictures of fish you would like to have a conversation about. Sure, it could be a fish you want identified by others, BUT it could be a fish you want others to learn about. Sharing information, isn't this what the ACA is ALL about?
I try to add plants to all my cichlid tanks, although not always with the best results,
with Gymnogeophagus it works pretty good.
Argentea seem more comfortable amidst plants
and I'm slowly adding plants to a beani tank to aee how it goes
Beautiful tank and your plants look very healthy. I was trying to go with a heavy ground cover and think I may have gone overboard lol. I am going to spent the week getting it right, setting up a DIY co2 system and will post some other pics once i'm satisfied with the results. At the moment mine seems a bit cluttered but the plants seem to be responding well. I think my Adaketo will be happy in this tank.
Beautiful tank Mike, its nice to see a well planted cichlid tank.
Thanks Jim, I set this tank up in my bedroom instead of downstairs like my other tanks. its a nice addition to the room and I just hope I'm able to maintain the plants. I can't even keep a ficus tree alive so a tank of plants will be a real challenge for me.
