Hey guys I'm new to the forum and just have a few questions. First off I just purchased a 55g tank and looking to making it a all male peacock tank. Just wondering where you guys buy your fish from. Any local breeders that have a good selection or do most people do the online ordering. I will be making a list shortly and maybe you guys can tell me what you think of it. I'm also looking at buying some coral rocks that we're previously used in a salt water tank. Any problems with this if I rinse them or soak them thoroughly. Will they have a negative outcome on ph or will they help raise it. Thanks.
Welcome to the forum mtorts. I generally purchase fish from other breeders (mainly in the US), via auctions and occasionally from distributers online. There are a number of peacock lovers locally that are breeding but a lot more in Michigan that I know. I'm not sure of your experience level but generally I encourage people to purchase from reputable LFS or breeders. Flying fish in is good too but there are additional costs involved and you don't get to actually see the fish prior to purchase. Sometimes when it's a rare or uncommon fish then you don't have many options but to order and have the species shipped.
Dead coral is fine to include in an African cichlid tank but it would be helpful to clean it first. There are many commercial substrates that are nothing more then crushed coral which will aid in increasing your pH and GH... something Rift Lake cichlids need.
Ok great thank you. I think I'm going to pick up some pool filter sand and I found some nice coral rock that was used in a previously owned cichlid tank for my decor. I'm looking forward to putting a list together and run it by you guys.
