  1. Such a shame. Just just definitely noticed a change is all. I hope they make a comeback. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  2. I've been outta this hobby for 3yrs but it me or is it that American cichlids aren't as popular anymore. Finding it really to find any breeders. In particular breeders if Silver Saums. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  3. Very nice mate. Love the finnage. I never get tired of looking at them. If he recovers you should try pair him up. Thats what i regret about not doing with my big gold. Good luck bro. Keep us posted with his progress. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks mate.. Ah that sucks mate. I lost a big male a few yrs back to the same problem as you. I also spent a bit trying to get him back to health but was unlucky. Really hooe yours pull thru. Feel free to post your pics of your saum here. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  5. Couple others from the room Enjoy😉 Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  6. Thought id share a couple pics of my large gold Saum. I've grown him out from when he was an inch long. Also have another gold that im in tge process of growing out. He has got potential to be another looker. I also have a white/silver around the 4.5cm mark and is looking the goods. He's just a tad camera shy. All are fed on Hikari pellets, live shrimp, earth worms and the odd pea. Im a Saum fanatic and hands down my all time favorite. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  7. Yea nice! Definitely looks the goods. Good quality water and food and he'll colour up nicely. Quality rivs are getting harder to come by. Nice one mate!
  8. Ah nice! Hands down my Favorite out of all cichlids. Nice set up mate. Keep the pics coming.
  9. Nice mate. The GT looks like it's got potential. Nice finnage. How big is he? Spewin about your old jag man. I know what its like to lose a best fish.
  10. around the 3cm mark. Give or take.
  11. Yea he is nice Matt, iv got a 4x2.5 that was going to be his home but he's just a little cranky for the others.
  12. https://db.tt/MmL7NuQ3 really nice riv. Pushing the 25cm mark. Goes into his home in the next cpl of days. 2.5 x 2.5 x 2 all to himself.
  13. White poo isn't normal. Its a sign of something going on Inside the fish. For a natural remedy try soaking some of their pellets in pure garlic juice for internal parasites. It sounds like worms, parasites at work here but you need to find out for sure of what your dealing with before you go treating with any sort of chemicals. Look at their poo, their gills, gravel, glass for any little nasties. maybe someone else could chime in for advice
  14. Hi maniacyosh 1986 It may not be the jag the only reason I said that is bcause it was the only other threat I seen in the pics. Now I see others it could very well be one of them. I would follow ozmo's advice. Separate from the aggressor and treat accordingly. Good luck
  15. Top pic looks like the festae has scuffing marks around the nostrils. Like the jags top jaw latchin on. is there any aggression between the two?
