somasroy.chakraborty wrote:Hi,

A few additional questions:

[1] How many Cichlids ideally I should have in my tank? [24"W x 15"D x 18"H - rough measurement, 70-litre capacity]
[2] What other species of Cichlids will live in harmony with Maylandia Estherae, Metriaclima Lombardoi and Melanochromis Auratus?
[3] Are there good LFS in south Kolkata apart from Splashing Meadows? [At present, Splashing Meadows has the above three Cichlid species only]
[4] How to identify a male or a female Cichlids? [Google suggests that females should outnumber males for peace and harmony in the tank]
[5] How often should I change the water? [According to my LFS, changing water once a month will keep my finned friends healthy and wise]

Thanks

these question too...

the last one is a hap..N. livingstoni (super aggressive)
above two are juvenile OB Peacock (Orange Blotch)
yellow kenyi is vague....kenyi when matures into males get yellow in color. Its transforming...will be fully yellow with vertical stripes.
and first is as mentioned above albino socolofi (snow white)

Thank you so much...The super aggressive one is behaving well so far in a tank of 19. Hopefully, peace and harmony will continue. :)
