Re: Cichla Help - Hemorrhaging, Lethargic, Upside-Down, etc.

I'm not sure that the shipping is what actually caused these things, but rather something happened that made it susceptible and it didn't have a good chance to acclimate properly because of the other fish. It didn't go "belly-up" until I tried to move it out of the original tank. And, like I said, I...

When I opened the box, it was well-insulated and heated, but there was maybe 4 inches of water depth in the bag, approximately...

Re: Silbersaum Green Terror has been described

Awesome! Been a long time coming.


So, if Andinoacara stalsbergi is green terror and A. rivulatus is Gold Saum, what is the one that has the scale pattern of the gold saum, but the fin margins of the green terror (aka White Saum)?
