Some fish I wanna buy
    #444441 - 07/10/10 09:43 AM (7 years, 20 days ago)

Getting sick of the same old Gourami's in my tank and they are turning into douches so I'm gonna sell them to the fish store and upgrade :bongload:


Horse Faced Cichlid



Yellow Convicts



Thread Finned Acura


Jewel Cichlid



Blue Ram


So what do you guys think? I really like the Horse Faced Cichlids because I have had some before and they really have a personality, but they all look awesome :cheech:

those are some pretty badass little cichlids, got a few tanks myself i'll tell u what ive found tho. My favorite and most exciting tank is my one with the bass we caught in it. And its got a red bellied parana, and a little red bellied slider too. We caught them all (except the parana of course)

But im telling you, if you just go down to a lake or pond and catch a smaller bass, it will be free and an awesome pet. Mine is like 5 inches long and can inhale 7 goldfish in one feeding, its so sick to watch. Just a suggestion.

T Rex, go with cichlids man.  I've had them in my tank for years.  I had 3 Oscard that were like a foot long a piece.  They have the most color and really go together well if you set the tank up right.  I have one of those jewel cichlids in my tank now.

I'd personally get the rams.

They are a dwarf so they would not get much larger than 2.5 inch.
Meaning you can get more in a single tank.

I'm aslo going to be getting some rams here soon. There's a breeder in my area that has some crazy good genetics.



I currently have a huge Electric blue jack dempsey breeding program going 6 years strong now.



I'm a big fan of invertibrates also. I just got some fresh water cardinal shrimp a couple days ago.


All pics stolen from google.

My experience is that Cichlids can be kept with Cichlids.  I've heard you don't want South Americans with Africans, but I haven't really encountered an issues with that.  You don't want to have any non Cichlids in there.  Although, for some reason I've always had catfish in the tank with my cichlids and there's never been a problem.  And the Pleco obviously which they haven't messed with either.  Anything other than that, random tropical fish, etc. etc., you're asking for a bloodbath.

I just stocked my 90 gallon with 25 of my best, I'm growing them out to get the strongest male.

I started breeding them when they cost 50 bucks a pop now they are able to be gotten for 10 bucks.

I'm doing it just because the market was flooded with deformed inbred fish.

I made it my mission to make them breed true(being that you must back cross fish with the recessive blue gene to a male with both genes being blue) or no offspring will survive.

It's been quite a chore really. At the beginning my best fish couldn't survive the mating ritual.
Being that the blues are more docile and the regulars wheren't name jack dempseys for no other reason than being brutally mean fish.
I'm still haunted by the day when my best male had his face torn off because his mate was just too much for him to handle.

Not anymore. I have bred strength and aggressiveness back into them.

I have some of the best genetics available, being that I have been producing them myself collecting the best specimens from fellow enthusiasts around the world. My gene pool is ridiculous.

It's now to the point where any fish store that carries them has good looking fish. Not the deformed shit like in the past.

[EDIT} Most blues are males and are really docile and can be kept with other fish. Unless you add a female then don't expect any in the tank to survive because they want privacy when the eggs are layed and will kill everything else in the tank.

No shit, that's cool dude.  I actually got a deformed cichlid from a store a while back.  He was a very bright blue but his head was slanted not rounded.  They just gave it to me for free so I took it.  You wouldn't be interested in selling and shipping your fish would you? :lol:

Btw, post a pic of your tank man.

I don't have any to sell atm. In a month I'll have some at around shipping size(1-2 inch).

I keep the top 10% and sacrifice the rest to the great and powerful porcelain god.

Most people sell for money and keep all the babies.


I'll get some pics up next time I'm at my bros house. He lets me rent a room and I filled it with 50 fish tanks, LOL!

Well I had some of my bigger gourami's in with some cichlids and they were fine, but I'm defs going to start to cross my tank over to cichlid soon.

yea catfish, loaches and pleco's all do well in pretty much any tank other than marine I've noticed

I like all sorts of fish from predators to koi. Cichlids I enjoy in communities I don't like the overly aggressive ones like the flowerhorns, dovvi, red devils, etc.
