    What kind of Cichlid is this?

    Yes you're probably right, from looking at other pictures that's exactly what your fish looks like.

    What kind of Cichlid is this?

    I'm not positive but it looks like a Maylandia Estherae. Welcome to the forum.

    The pictures have to be less than 1mb in size. You may have to resize them and if they are .png files converting them to .gif or .jpg will reduce the file size quite a bit. Or you can upload the pictures to a free pic host like imgur and use the insert image button.

    Fluval FX6 Filter Cleaning

    I just cleaned all the filters on all of my aquariums. In December I put a Fluval FX6 on my 125 gallon aquarium and haven't had to clean it until today. It wasn't all that dirty, I could have went a couple more months without cleaning it. Not to bad considering I have at least 40-50 Cichlids in...

    What Type of Cichlid are Black Convicts

    The Convicts will attack any fish including other Convicts during spawning even fish much larger than they are. The biggest problem with Convicts is once they pair up they're constantly laying eggs. I've had aquariums with Convicts where there were 4 or more pairs with babies at the same time...

    Activated Carbon Use

    I used activated carbon years ago but now I only use it if I'm removing medicine from a aquarium.

    Fish keep dying

    I keep my aquariums at 82 degrees but 78 shouldn't be a problem. If the fish you're buying are healthy the only thing that can be causing the problem is either poor water quality, not enough water changes or the bigger Cichlid is killing them.

    Fish keep dying

    Have you bought all the new fish from the same store? How long do the new fish live after you put them in your aquarium? Do they eat when you feed them? What temperature do you keep the water in your aquarium? The Cichlid in the picture you posted looks healthy so I'd lean toward the store...

    Fish keep dying

    Hi, welcome to the forum. Do the new fish show any signs of being sick before they die? Are the new fish close to the same size as the old fish?

    ICH maybe!!

    What size is your aquarium? What filter(s) are you using? How many fish are in the aquarium? How much water do you change when you do a water change? If you have aggressive fish nipping at each other the fish will be more prone to getting fungus and other problems.

    ICH maybe!!

    Have you added any new fish to the aquarium lately? Are any of the fish being aggressive to other fish? I went through something similar a few months back and finally got rid of the fungus or whatever it was by using Seachem ParaGuard in the aquarium and mixing Seachem KanaPlex in the food.

    They really should tell you about the staining when using API Fungus Cure. All they say is, Note: This medication will cause a slight discoloration of water which can be removed with activated carbon. I've used the API Furan 2 before and it made the water yellow but didn't stain anything and...
