    Yes that’s one of my concerns too. The L. dorsigera are also a still water fish, so really you’re mixing species from two totally different environments. This in itself might not be a major problem as the Steatocranus will survive if you just keep the water well-oxygenated. However as Dunc said, rheophilic species are generally much more interesting to watch when kept in a biotope set-up in my opinion. Dunc, lmao by the way, You’ve linked to the incomplete humphead glass fish profile L. dorsigera are also pretty shy wee fish and will likely be out-competed if territorial battles do break out. I’ve not kept Steatocranus but I know one of our other staff members has bred S. casuarius, so maybe he can enlighten us as to how nasty they are when spawning?

    God what a rant! Sorry but as I’m sure you know, mixing cichlids is often a complicated business. Plus you did ask L. caeruleus would be ok for a short while. The kribs and Steatocranuswould probably coexist without too much trouble over the long term. Personally I’d leave out the Laetacara but of course, we can only offer advice. The choice is yours. Plus the unholiest mixtures of fish can sometimes work fine. If you do try it, I’d strongly recommend observing the tank as much as possible for the first few weeks in case any of them need rescuing.

    If it were up to me I’d keep the S. Tinanti, leave out the rest, add a pair or trio of another rheophilic African cichlid such as Lamprologus congoensis, some African tetras and a Synodontis brichardi or two. I’d then furnish the tank as a fast-water biotope with plenty of smooth rocks and lots of flow.

    Edit: Dunc please rid us of these horrible msn emoticons

    Hi Amy. Congrats on the first ever fish-related post here! Can you supply any of the following bits of info, as it would help with a diagnosis:

    • What form of gold fish is it? Is it the standard shape or one of the ‘fancy’ rounded varieties?
    • How long has the tank been set up for?
    • Was the filter matured before any fish were added?
    • Did your friend add any chemical products to the raw tapwater?
    • How long was the fish in the bag for?
    • Was the fish acclimatised to the new tank or just thrown straight in when it was brought home?
    • Is it swimming normally now?
