  1. Hey there, So, if your liking the bigger cichlids, im guessing you liek the colours yes ? what sandy suggested works very veyr well, but is still based on a tropical community tank, there ane MANY species, that will do well in a community tank, aswell as certain apistogram species, and if the tank is tall enough, angels.... as for rams eating things well, you wanan show me something small enough to fit in a rams mouth ? only very very fish or fry would be edible... but, being as it sounds like you like the bigger things, you could have a trio of convicts in there ? but they WILL pump babies out constantly, or possibly a pair of jack dempseys ? these will eventually outgrow the tank in a year or so, so would need plans to upgrade... same stands for many of the other cichlids that dont surpass the 8 inch mark.... but, most importantly, WHAT have you seen that you like ? if you like the red devil, convicts have a very similar attitude but in a much more compact size, and 3 of those would live in your tank for life... HTH Kev

    its a jack dempsey (cichlid) and also an oscar (cichlid) nice fish by the way ( oh and if you think oscars are peacefull, you should meet my big three Kev
  4. temperature would make no difference without other mthods such as salt also, higher temps somehow helps the fish to realise the fluids conected with dropsy better though, so loz is right, rasing the temp would help, if you lower the temp, the fish would just hold the problem easier... i can only suggest rasing the temp and salting with espon salts untill meds arrive...

  5. a 36 x 12 x15 is the absolute minimum id keep a single one in.... males will reach about 8 inches, and will deffinetly repay good care with stunning colour got him yet ? Kev
  6. JD's are a great medium sized cichlids, extremely colourfull get to between 5 and 8 inches depending on sex...individuals vary some what attitude, some are nice as pie, other are evil little so in so's.... HTH Kev
