  1. Hi everyone, I have always wanted to keep these guys and now I finally have four. One 7 cm male, one 5 cm female and 2 x 3 cm Juvies. Like I said, always wanted, never kept them before. I was worried about one of the Juvies, plonked on one of the rock outcrops and not moving much. Any other fish I would have though it was sick, but at feeding time he rushed for food, so less worries now. I love the way their Mohawk as I call it is raised when they are feeding and telling other fish to nick off out of their territory. Has anyone one kept these guys before and is able to pass on some good tips? my Juvies have not yet secured any real territory as yet so one loves the top of the heater and the other the top of the basalt rock formation. any tips and behavioural/ welfare tips would be great. Water change cautions and tips as well.
  2. YaY..... finally got one of my Dimidiochromis compressiceps holding again and she is full as. you can see the eggs easy as tumbling in her mouth. I sectioned the tank off for her and am unsure if that is the best idea :/ Very similar to one of my kapampa frontosa holding a couple of weeks ago and did the same and sectioned her off. I do notice they seem to stress out a bit with the grate and some what swim up and down it. I really don't think either fish have or liked the grate but I don't want to take the grate away in case the other fish harass them. The eye biters are nut cases. Any ways.... any ideas on what you will do? let her swim free like my kapampa or strip her? What is the ideal stripping day on a eye biter? here is a crap pic of the Dimidiochromis compressiceps holding and a pic of my kapampa frontosa holding at present
  3. Hello everyone, i have someone who has offered me 2 pairs of gold head compressiceps that havn't breed for $400. is that a fair price ? the seller says the males are around 10cm and females around 8cm, would you pay that much ? is the size difference big enough to be pairs ? Thanks heaps.Ben

  5. Can anyone tell me what is the differents between Gold Compressiceps and Fire fin Compressiceps? Are they come from the same family or they are completely different? Cheers

  7. Altolamprologus compressiceps? Just wondering what these cichlids are like to keep and breed? are they a good beginner cichlid? any advise would be appreciated.
  8. I have a Dimidiochromis compressiceps (malawi eye biter) that i bought quite small for my ~280litre lake malawi tank. The tank is kept around 8.2-8.5 PH to suit these africans. the eye-biter is growing very fast however & often has head injuries from the many rock formations in the tank... so i was thinking about putting the eye-biter in with my american cichlids in a much bigger 8'x2'x2' tank that has much more open swimming room in it. the PH in my american tank stays around 7.0-7.5. is that too low a PH to keep a Dimidiochromis compressiceps in? or does anyone forsee any other problems with the move? note : the picture is from a few months back & the Dimidiochromis compressiceps has grown considerably since then... it's about 15cm sans tail at the moment. if i do make the move i will probably still wait till the Dimidiochromis compressiceps is about 20cm sans tail to ensure it's survival with my dovii.
  9. Hey guys, I've seen a few pics of this online, but have not seen one in the flesh. Anyone have any experience seeing these around? [/img]
  10. What are these guys like to keep? I really like the look of them and am wondering if i could put them in my African community tank? oh and are the expensive? Tim
