    The Suriname Cichla Growout Thread

    Finally received my highly anticipated package from our import lord, Wes. Got two 3" wild Sp. Brokopondo and one 3.5" Rio Suriname C. Temensis. I actually broke my rule of not buying bass under 5" for these guys so I figured I'd use the opportunity to start a growout thread and track their...

    Cichla Feeding Schedules?

    Just wanted to hear what people are using as a feeding regimen for their Cichla. What're you currently feeding? How big are your bass? How long have you been following that food plan? How does it compare to other feeding patterns you've used? Or anything else you can think of sharing in the...

    Is my peacock a Cichla Temensis or Cichla Azul?

    It was sold as a Cichla Temensis but the coloration and some blue colors in the fish are making me wonder whether it actually is a Temensis or an Azul. I attached the picture, it had a massive meal just before the picture that's why its so fat. The coloration of the fish in real life is...

    Cichla bunch

    Very new here and just wanted to ask a few things to beef up my cichlas. Been giving them chicken heart and shrimps since day 1. Just wanted to ask a few other options to maximize their growth and enhance their colors? Attached their pictures 😁

    African Tiger Fish & Peacock Bass

    Hello, I write this post with a mashed brain. I have owned a total of 5 ATF, in specific 1 FATF & 3 VATF. I own 1 currently because the other 3 were attempts at previously keeping them that failed & 1 I sold. My bass always seems to have a problem. It starts about 8months ago when I got my...

    My Little Punk Rockers

    So far my Pinima are growing out and fattening up nicely. When I first got them I got so worried thinking their fins were all nipped up. But I realized after a minute Pinima just have some intense little mohawks. Naturally, I named my guys Sonic and Punk. Glad to see they’re maintaining that...

    The Magnificent Seven

    Welp, as of last week I finished my thinning. Bringing down my bass school from 13 to 7. The trade off is the water looking crystal clear even after a week without a change and the new hierarchy and space had made all the cichla grow and color up even further in almost no time! Especially the...

    For Sale  Thinning Out The Extras

    Happy New Year! Decided to thin out the unnecessary fish in my Cichla/Amazonian Catfish tank a bit more. Not in any hurry to get rid of them but I feel they take away from the general look I'm going for. I have tried to make my prices pretty reasonable as I'd ultimately rather they go to a good...

    Cichla Orimensis And Cichla Temezul

    Just got a few new additions today. Two wild caught 6” Temensis Orino hybrid bass and one 5.5” Temensis Azul hybrid. The Temezul is in emergency quarantine right now as it apparently did not handle the journey well and I’m hoping it pulls through. The Orimensis are already flourishing but are...
