    Tropheus Ikola

    Ive always wanted to start a colony of tropheus ikola but I have almost no clue how to run an african cichlid tank. I was wondering if there was a good forum on here or a website y'all trust that I can do my homework on africans and more specifically the tropheus.

    Thanks in advance!

    I wouldn't recommend starting out with tropheus they are better suited for an experienced keeper. Start with mbuna and if you can keep them for a while without nitrates getting above 20 ppm and not feeding just normal old fish food but a specialized diet, keep a single species with multiple males and keep aggression at bay, and maintain a stable ph between 8-9. Also learn to treat bloat, trophs are notorious for it.
