  1. Hey these are 2 are from AI. Hoping the smaller one is a girl.
  2. I would get a breeder trap and put the male in there or female if you want them just for display a 2ft with a good amount of plants should keep her good. Also if you do a water change once a week should be fine. This link has some great info Beginners Corner
  3. Hmm well the tank is on a steady 26 deg and he still eats. Mite try and find another oscar for him.
  4. Hey I have a wild oscar that I aquired about 5-6months ago he was very shy at first until he learnt were the food came from. He was very curious when he was young but grew more snappy as he got older but he grew up with humpheads and tinanti. He is only in a 4x18x18 at the moment but he is being a such a sook in the tank if I put him in the bigger tanks he picks on the bigger fish and eats all the food till it cant fit and he just swims into it trying to eat more. I put a redhump male in there with him and they just sit at opposite ends of the tank. I was going to add in 8 silver dollars I have next to see if that helps. Has any one else had oscars that are big sooks or know a good mate for him? Any tips or funny fish stories would be great to hear.
  5. Thats perfect really sounds like my routine well when my uaru got sick it was because a fish died and i didnt find it for a couple of days. If u have got the myaxazin already give it ago its meant for ulcers,sores and fin rot.
  6. What temp do you keep them on and how much water do u change? I have had this problem before but small pits (they look liked small bites out of the flesh) it covered 1/3 of the fish in 3 days I treated with copper and that fixed them up. I did large water change and gravel vac before treatment. no other fish on system got sick
  7. If anyone is interested i have a few spare all boys i think. I had a heap but lost interest and not sure wats left still did w/c and good food but don't watch them anymore.
  8. Hey I keep afra cobue never herd of the other name but u know fish names. I have a very nice line (similar to pic above) i have a about 20 up to size by end of may plenty more on the way. So if any one interested please let me know i can get pics in a couple of days.
  9. It is amazing how many cichlids will eat fruit and veg as most are omnivores(not saying they all will). My wild oscar eats sushi nori and banana i always try new foods. Even dried split peas $2 a bag and u can soak them in vitamin additives or chuck them in dry there always gone by morning.
  10. the Kasnga looks similar to the Isanga when not in colouration with the light blue and black freckles.

  12. pima and mela are safe for nearly anything never had trouble. cheap safe effective
  13. I find Pimafix to be pretty good at dealing with pop eye ealier the better a bit of melafix wouldn't hurt either if they have been fighting.
  14. Glen is a good fishkeeper and easy to get along with. And his deals seem too good sometimes lol i dont mind tho ......
  15. I agree with aquatic paradise i have read that fish can get pinched nerves that cause black colouration also there is a disease which Where the fishes body cant control the melonan inthe fish and u get black areas . I read this in the handbook of fish diseases i think its old u can still buy it. Its blue But alot of other things can cause black colouration of cichlids hybrids, line breeding if done too much,
