Hey all! I have had two parrot cichlids in a 46 gallon tank for nearly 2 months. They still hide constantly and seem to be terrified of me. Is this typical? I always thought they would come out by the time a month had past. They also rarely eat their food. When i throw in some flakes or brine shrimp they maybe take a few bites..sometimes don't eat at all. This causes me to have to change the water an clean the gravel very often because of all of the extra food. I have another question, i currently have a penn plax cascade 300 filter and im worried it isn't good enough for my cichlids. I got it from meijers and it said its for up to 100 gallon tank or something crazy like that so i figured it must be good. well currently my water looks a little cloudy, even though i clean the tank fairly often. Should I consider getting a better quality fitler? Ugh ahhh!! any help you fish experts could offer would be awesome, im very frustrated! thanks!
