Back about 6 months ago, I bought a male Ahli cichlid from beverley's and put him in my african cichlid community (120 gallons). since then, I bought a female for him at a fish farm, and they bred once, then showed no interest in her because he grew a little and she became smaller. Iput her in a 20 gallon until she grows to be bigger than him, then plan to move him there too until they breed. then I will remove him and put him back in the 120 gallon so she can incubate. I know that technically this is too small of a tank to breed them in, but it's all I got. what do I need to feed her to get her to grow fastest, in addition to small (1 gallon) waterchanges daily? what should I feed her when she is ready to breed? her current diet is spectrum medium sinking large fish formula. the Ph is about 8, and the ammonia is 0. here are a few pictures:


He is the real deal! he is not the fryeri, because only the ahli has those faint bars!



the second picture shows her bars better.

turns out that he is really S. fryeri (Maleri Is.), a different color morph than the regular fryeri.... African Cichlid Genus Gallery
