Thread: Starting a new tank, possibly cichlids?

  1. #11
    I really appreciate all the info today, I'm picking up my new-to-me tank from CL this weekend so I have time to plan the fish - then think about the tank layout. I'll keep an eye on the forums to see what's for sale since I trust real fish hobbyist over LFS teenagers any day!

    And in only a day my ideal tank has gone from a 36 to a 55, I will be picking it up this weekend and couldn't be more excited!

    There might be a few people from this group who do end up going. the "meeting" is at a fish store called Fish Bolz and he does have some interesting fish at times. From what I have seen on the Facebook page there will be a decent gathering of people. The gatherings are not a true meeting, but more of an adhoc get together where people will discuss fish in small groups and there will be some people selling various items.

    Well, I picked up my 55g this weekend, it's awesome and the guy was getting out of the hobby so he gave me EVERYTHING he had so now I have enough filters, heaters, decorations etc to set up 10 tanks! For better or worse, he also asked me to take his 2 convicts. I was hoping to have a more colorful, less aggressive tank and from what I've been reading, there really aren't any fish that can live in this tank with the convict pair.

    1. A friend has a 75g with bala sharks, angels and skirted tetras - could 1 convict be moved in there or will it still be too aggressive?
    2. If I can move 1 convict, could the other live semi-peacefully with other cichlids? possibly peacocks?

    thanks,
    Beth
