A guide to aquarium accessories and fish care

A trip to your local pet shop or aquarium centre will show you that there are a lot of aquarium products out there. Of course, not all of these products are necessary.

Included in the must-have items for an aquarium is a water filter. A water filter is essential to ensure your fish always have clean water. Even if your aquarium water looks perfectly clean, it is still possible that it has been infected with chemicals or dirt which could easily harm your fish, but this is easily solved with an aquarium filter.

need a new home for parrot cichlids in L.A/Pasadena

We have two big (4-5inch) very healthy red parrot cichlids in our 100 gallon tank which also houses a variety of cichlids and a few others. The two parrots get along with each other very well but not so much with the other cichlids (we just had a new batch of fry, currently separated but who will return soon) and we would like to find them a new home if possible. I know I could just put this on craislist but would like them to go to someone who knows/wants parrot cichlids vs. someone saying "cool, free fish" :) I can send pictures via email (or figure out how to post them here).

Cruel Valentine's Day Parrot!

Just wanted to let all parrot cichlid lovers know about this:

There have been unscrupulous traders using laser to inject dyes into parrot cichlids. These motifs include roses for Valentine's Day.

see the pictures on http://fireopal82.blogspot.com/2009/02/cruel-valentine.html

These techniques are not permanent and cause a lot of pain and stress to the fishes!

Hope you all support the Death by Dyeing organisation!

Pictures of my rainbow fish, maybe?

Ok... I have a brown fish that changes daily in colors, he goes from a dark brown to a light brown, goldish orange color to sometimes, yellow and even a greenish or blue color. I have had it about 3 years. He has stayed under 5 inches for the last two years, I dont even believe that he is even five inches, maybe 4.5. He is not agressive but will defend his territory. I recently came to the conclusion that he is a rainbow chichlid. I read about it in a fish magazine, in my opinion he meets the rainbow guidlines. I have one other "fish person" say that he is a rainbow as well.

Pictures!

Here are more pics of my tank. The one with the black stripes is the one being bullied. The black stripes are normal for him, he has had the same ones for six years. There are more hiding spots than ever because they are picking at each other so much. I have added things and taken away things and rearanged things every week for the last month. I also just got some black widow tetras and phantom tetras for distraction. I really hope things settle down in there.

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.

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.

Fran form wal-mart

Hi Again,

Just wanted to say It's ok. I know how ppl get about wal-mart. Just so you all know. All the tanks at wal-mart have shared water. All the warm water mixes and filters together, and all the cold water mixes and filters together. So if one tank gets contaminated they all do.
