Pink Convict Cichlid Pond Fish | Arizona Aquatic Gardens

a, Cichlid and genes identified in this study. b, PHYML tree based on the fish TAAR and OR amino acid sequences. A phylogeny tree was constructed with all OR and TAAR cichlid proteins identified in this study ( = 503 + 119) plus 229 and 173 genes identified in zebrafish, fugu, tetraodon, medaka and stickleback. The amino-acid sequences were aligned with MAFFT version 7 and a tree constructed with PHYML and visualized with Fig Tree (version 1.3.1). The TAAR branches are in pink and the OR branches in blue or yellow. Colours indicate the composition of the branches. Dark blue branches are made of cichlid OR only, light blue indicates the presence of cichlid and model fish OR proteins. Yellow is for branches made of OR model fish proteins, only. Light pink branches correspond to cichlid and model fish TAAR proteins and dark pink to model fish TAAR proteins only. Letters correspond to family names.

I like to put a pair of salvini cichlids in with 5 silver berb fish 4 black skirt tetras and3honey gourmis and 1 male pink convict cichlid.

The Convict Cichlid has a stocky oval disk shape, with pointed anal and dorsal fins. This is one of the smaller Central American cichlids, with the males only reaching 5 - 6" (13 -15 cm) in length and females a bit less at 3 - 4" (8 -10 cm). They are also very deep bodied so it's easy to underestimate their actual size. They have a general life span of 8 - 10 years, though there have been reports of individuals living up to 20 years.This cichlid has a blue-gray, cream, or blue-lavendar base on the body with 8 to 9 dark vertically running bands. They have a break in the vertical bands in the area behind their head, almost forming a "U" shape. The fins are clearish to light yellow.With in-line breeding there are now several color varieties. The Pink Convict Cichlid or White Convict Cichlid are pseudo-albino varieties that are pink and cream, and lack the characteristic vertical bars. The coloring of the male is monotone while the female will have an orangish patch on the stomach.All cichlids, along with some saltwater fish such as wrasses and parrotfish, share a common trait of a well-developed pharyngeal set of teeth located in the throat, along with their regular teeth. Cichlids have spiny rays in the back parts of the anal, dorsal, pectoral, and pelvic fins to help discourage predators. The front part of these fins are soft and perfect for precise positions and effortless movements in the water as opposed to fast swimming.Cichlids have one nostril on each side while other fish have 2 sets. To sense "smells" in the water, they suck water in and expel the water right back out after being "sampled" for a short or longer time, depending on how much the cichlid needs to "smell" the water. This feature is shared by saltwater damselfish and cichlids are thought to be closely related.

Pink cichlid with parrot fish(by keshav) - YouTube

berb fish 4 black skirt tetras and3honey gourmis and 1 male pink convict cichlid. This Tank is about 21 months old. It has mostly Rainbow Fish and a few Loaches. It also has a 3 year old male Pink Convict Cichlid. The Red Rainbows have grown since my last video. One Red Rainbow is a pretty impressive size of about 12 cm. The Turquoise Rainbows have also grown, just not as big. I also added some more Rainbows to the tank; lets see how they adapt to the tank.

My convict pink cichlid female fish died after apparently laying eggs

The Convict Cichlid (previously and ), a.k.a. the Zebra Cichlid, is a hardy fish with a pugnacious attitude. Their name, Convict Cichlid, originates from the broad, dark vertical lines running down their body, making them similar in apperance to the traditional "jailbird" outfit. When mature, they reach a maximum size of about 5-6" (13-15 cm) which makes them one of the smaller Central American cichlids. The male Convict will be larger than the female, but the females will be more colorful. There are also several color varieties being bred. The popular pseudo-albino forms are known as the Pink Convict Cichlid or White Convict Cichlid.
