Gazoo

I just had to tell you all a funny update about Gazoo. He has been reluctant to jump in the net for about 2 months. This usually happens when he is in his little breeding cycle. Normally, he will wag at the front of the tank, indicating he wants me to bring the net so he can jump in and be hand-fed a food stick. But when he gets an overdose of testosterone, he won't go near the net, and just parades around the tank like he owns the place. So for the last 6 or 8 weeks he has been really impossible to feed by hand. Fortunately he is good at hunting flake food.

Please help a guy out who doesn't know anything about cichlids

I sincerely apologize if this is a huge breach of etiquette for this board. I need some help and you guys might be able to provide it. A quick e-mail from admin saying go away, and I promise you won't see me post again.

I found this topic from a Google search for "250 gallon aquarium"
http://parrotcichlid.com/node/13137
And that's why I'm posting here
I know nothing about fish or aquariums.

Parrot Cichlid Change in Behavior

I have 2 Parrot Cichlids in a 10 gallon tank. Present tank mates include; 1 Tiger Barb, 3 Tetras, 1 Cory Cat, 1 Striped Raphael cat, 1 Plecostamos. All have gotten along reasonably well. PH 7.4, ammonia and Nitrites seem OK. Both Cichlids began to stay up near surface of water(2 days). Presently one is on it side at the bottom and the other is still near surface. I believe both are in distress but cannot figure out what the problem might be. One of the cichlids has had a few dark discolorations. No other visible concerns.

Blood parrots How smart are they?

i have six parrots. Sometimes i swear its like they can tell the difference from me and my girlfriend. My girlfriend is the one that pointed it out first. They follow me all around the room, from one side to the other. I swear they would jump out and follow me upstairs if they could. They are so friendly. When i do my water changes they follow my hand and siphon all around the tank. If i cup my hand they swim in and out rubbin against me. Just an awsome fish. I never would have expected it being that they are a hidbrid.

black spots, need advise

What wrong with my parrot, For the last week it has been showing black spots, they are getting worse everyday, adn now today its lips look chapped. Ive done 40% water chage 2 times this week. Is there any meds I can buy to help, or does anyone have any other suggestions.
Thanks concerned OWNER!!!

Posting Pictures with Flickr

I set up a flickr account so I can post pictures. Can someone explain to me how to get the pictures to this site. I read to copy and paste a code with 400 width. Exactly where do I get this code to copy? I am sure it is easier than I am making it out to be. Thanks.

Acclimating

Hi! This is my first post here. I just got a parrot cichlid yesterday. She was described as being very active and the storekeeper was very encouraging about getting her. When I put her in my tank though, she's simply spent the last 24 hours hiding behind a giant piece of furniture. I felt like i had too much furniture so I removed some because she seemed to like trying to back up through every available opening. I have a lot less in there now, but she still hides in the same spot. I am a little discouraged about this behavior. Is she healthy... is everything OK?

My BP is weird!

My BP gingerkid is a weirdo! He always goes to the bathroom under the same plant in the tank. He makes noises at the top of the tank when I'm not paying attention..when I look, he plays shy, hiding in his gnome castle. And loves to eat tuna!... He also hugs the tank heater with his body even tho it's set at the correct temp of 78! Anyone else have strange BP's? Just thought I'd share!

Ginger Fishie!
