Great dither fish for your cichlid tank

Post  Nick Hanan on Thu Mar 29, 2012 1:16 pm

A guy posted a video of his tank and his dither fish on a forum I'm always on and I'm fascinated by how well the dither fish and his cichlids get along and how well his dither fish lessen the aggression of his other fish such as his texas cichlid. I just thought I would share it with you all. I really wish I could find the exact dither fish he has, he has red cheek barbs, red hook silver dollars, and filament barbs. They all are pretty good looking dither fish! ...Its a really great idea to have dither fish in your aquarium, it makes your other fish feel safer and less aggressive. Very Happy

maybe a few too many dither fish. silver dollars are great with cichlids even malawi's apart from the ph difference but most aquarium shop fish are conditioned to the near same ph levels. the other fish which is great is a bala shark they are great and all those fish can and like living on a veggy diet

pH range 5.1 - 7.2 for silver dollar
pH range: 6.0 - 8.0 for bala shark <---- closer ph levels out the 2 and they are also fairly cheap

Forgot to add the average ph of malawi's
these are in the wild ph levels local fish shops do condition their fish to lower ph levels sometimes

pH range: 7.0 - 8.5 malawi cichlids in general some might vary slightly study
