View Full Version : cichlid spawning

06-29-2003, 10:24 AM
I have recently started my first ever fish tank. Do I need to take any steps in order to get my fish to breed? Do they have to be the same kind of Cichlid (like the same color)? Will it be obvious when I have a pregnant fish? Then do I seperate her? I have so many questions. If you could help me out it would be much appreciated. keep on rockin in the free world......jr

hi joeramse...do you know what kind of cichlids you have? describe your tank set up. males and females of the same species very often are not the same color.

Welcome joeramsey, and congratulations on your first fish tank.

As SGypsyMermaid said... The more info you can tell us about your current setup and the fish that you have or want the more we can give you some opinions. Since many species have different traits, colors, breeding habits etc...its best to determine what size tank you want/have....then decide on what fish can be kept comfortably based on that .

Look forward to hearing from ya again.
