Conflicting advice on stocking an Oscar tank...

I am new to oscars, as well as cichlids in general. I have several tanks of various sizes but the tank I have the oscars in is a 125 gallon. It has been up and running for about a month now and this evening I purchased two 2 inch tiger oscars to add. There are currently no other fish in the tank. I have been trying to find out the best advice on how to stock oscars so I get the least amount of aggression. However, I also want an interesting looking tank as this is as big as I can ever go. Options I have considered are adding a third oscar, two jack dempseys, or a school of 6 silver dollars. So ..read more

Hi all, I'm having a little trouble. I asked the fish shop man for a male and female. He said he would try but said he had trouble sexing then himself! So I turn to the internet where the experts are plenty! xD First one I think is a male because it looks more colourful but the rear dorsal fin looks round at the end.

What kind of cichlids do I have?

]I put my first two fish in my tank today, I bought “2 African cichlids” I was wondering if someone could tell me what exact variety I got from the store so I know what to feed, and what a good diet will be. And how big will they get eventually so I know what size tank to upgrade to. I got cichlids because I have 7.8-8.4 ph water and decently hard water. My kh is really high as well. I have some plants in my tank and drift wood. https://postimg.cc/gallery/Ny5djZ6 ..read more

I have a 40 gallon breeder tank. Thinking about surface area as well as volume and the fact that a 40 breeder is actually about 47 gallons of water. I currently have a Marbled Sailfin Pleco in the tank. I am wondering if I can add Geophagus Sveni Cichlid and a Chocolate (Emerald) Cichlid. So there would only be those three fish. The tank is light -moderately planted ..read more

HELP! Identify my cichlids please

I have 2 kribensis cichlids that have been in my tank a while but they were bought at separate times from different stores because each store only had one left and one claims to be male and the other is supposedly female but their rear fins are completely different looking. From my research there is a difference in dorsal fins but they look fairly similar besides the fact they have different back fins. The rounded one is the “male” and the cool unique one is the “female”. Could I get some help identifying them? They both seem to be pretty passive in social behavior besides the rounded back fin ..read more
