My new fishes - N Cadu - New Babies - Page 3

Postby Abhisek » Mon Aug 04, 2014 9:52 am

Been out of fish keeping for quite some and actually it felt boring without witnessing my dear cichlids fighting with each other, displaying their territorial aggression, fry care...

My biggest tank I already have converted it into paludrium and had vampire crabs in them, what a twist of irony it turned out that all 9 of the crab are male and they almost killed each other!!!

Due to space constraint converted the palu into again a shell dweller setup and the crabs are relocated..

The tank setup has been done with the help of Abhro :D and this time I used Caribsea Eco-Complete Cichlid sand, and the sand is beautiful.

Here is the tank details-
36*18*18
2*8kg bag of Caribsea Eco-Complete Cichlid Sand
Locally Collected Rocks
1200lt/h overhead filter.

After cycling the tank keeping a colony of 5 Neolamprologous Cadupunctatus and they are a fish any cichlid lover should must keep!!!. They are tiny but always patrolling their tank area with the fin erect and that is a lovely sight!!!

Few snaps of them -

Suvrajit, I had started my Tang Cichlid journey with Lelupis only - the yellow variety.
Kept them breed them and then sold them off :) They are lovely fishes but become too much aggressive during breeding.

About temperature fluctuation they cant take more than 30-32, one of my known ones calvus died at that temperature. I keep mine mostly in summer around 30.
