Once your ammonia and nitrite levels remain at zero for seven days, despite "feeding" the tank, you are ready for fish. Continue to add ammonia until you are about to pick up your fish. The day you are getting your fish, perform a water change of at least 75 gallons just before you add your cichlids. Adding all of your African cichlids at once prevents fish from getting a jump start on establishing territories and picking on newcomers.

What's up everyone! Here's a look at my 125 gallon African cichlid, home to about 35 fish including some Malawi, Tanganyikan and Victorian cichlids. I also keep a pair of West African Jewel Cichlids, a school of 5 clown loaches and 2 bristle nose pleco's! I've been keeping African cichlids for about 5 years now, and this is the best setup in my opinion; from fish color to tank scape!

The FTKs are hired to create something completely unique: an African lake re-created in a tank swarming with freshwater cichlids and topped off with an African sausage tree. Jose has never seen a tree like this and worries that his replica might bring the entire project crashing to the ground. Meanwhile, setbacks plague a construction project to build a brand new, state-of the-art quarantine facility that will allow the Kings to provide a variety of fish to their clients.It's always a good idea to keep any new fish in a Quarantine Tank for a few weeks for monitoring before introducing them into your main tank. The African Butterfly can be sensitive to fluctuations in and temperature. You may also want to take a little longer when acclimating your fish to the tank water. Take an hour (instead of 15 minutes) and slowly add small amounts of tank water to the bag every 10 minutes or so.The African Butterfly fish is a really odd looking fish and can make an interesting addition to the right tank. When viewed from above the African Butterfly fish's pectoral fins resemble butterfly wings. They come from slow flowing rivers in Africa so it would be good to put them in a tank with slower water movement. African Butterfly Fish seem to float much of the time, so if you're looking for a really active fish this may not be the one for you. They are predatory and will eat smaller surface dwelling fish.Synodontis cats are easy to maintain as they readily accept just about any variety of food offered, greedily perusing the tank floor for anything edible. As long as the water quality is maintained they tend to thrive. They like some cover, such as caves or wood where they can hang out and feel secure, and like other cats they tend to be the most active in the evening. Though they can be kept singly, they prefer to be in groups and often congregate in their native habitats. They are not generally aggressive, but larger specimens should not be trusted with smaller fish in the tank as they may mistake them for food. They can be housed with a variety of tank mates that share water quality preferences, but should not be housed with larger aggressive or predatory fish. Since many of these fish come from the rift lakes in Africa they are often recommended as scavengers for African cichlid aquariums. They prefer the slightly harder water and a higher pH, so they adapt well to a rift lake aquarium. River species like the water a little softer and can handle lower pH. Be sure to research the preferences of the species you like before purchase, noting origin and preferred water conditions as well as adult size to ensure that cat will be a good fit for your tank. While Synos tend to be hardy, poor water conditions can cause their health to decline quickly, so regular water changes are essential.
