Hello,

I have about 20, 2 inch specimens from my second batch. These guys are a great addition to any community tank as they are not aggresive towards tank mates. I only feed these guys new life spectrum and blood worms. They are colored up and very stunning. I am asking $5.00 each or 4 for $15.00.!FIRM! I bought the male and female adults for 18.99 each, so $5.00 each is a steal.

Here is a great site to answer any questions you may have about the Thorichthys pasionis , Yellow meekis:

The Cichlid Room Companion - Thorichthys pasionis (Rivas 1962), the yellow meeki

Will trade fish for fish, for any other thorichthys like:

Thoichthys affinis
Thorichthys aureus
Thorichthys callolepis
Thorichthys champotonis
Thorichthys ellioti
Thorichthys helleri
Thorichthys helleri meeki
Thorichthys meeki, Firemouth Cichlid
Thorichthys socolofi

Located near 12th ave. and Commercial dr. in Vancouver

Thanks for your interest

gorgeous fish, and very mellow. totally friendly in my community tank - great choice if you want to get into cichlids and not change out a whole tank. very similar markings to my blue gourami's, and one of the gourami's keeps trying to 'spoon' with them haha

Will these guys do well in soft (4dGH, 4dKH) and slighty acidic (6.8) water?
here is paragraph from the website listed above:

The water in the yellow meeki habitat is normally characterized by low visibility, although not murky, which is not surprising considering the nature of the sediment. Temperature ranges between 25° to 30° Celsius and the pH is always on the alkaline side, from 7.5 and up to 8.5 are the measurements I have obtained in several parts of the cichlids range. Water temperature is normally higher in the Thorichthys pasionis habitat than in that of the species of the T. helleri group. Hardness is more variable with measurements of 8 and up of General Hardness German degrees.

Ok in that case, my question changes to does anyone keep these in water parameters similar to mine? I think with most fish, I've heard that the ph and hardness aren't too critical as long as they are kept stable. I am wondering if this applies to the yellow meeki.

Also, do adult males show aggression with each other?

my parameters are similar and my five I bought earlier this year are doing great. What's interesting is that since I've added the cloud of swordtails the meeki's are no longer near the bottom all the time, but all over the tank. (50 gallon with current from two directions)

I have a 49 gal bowfront with lots of rock, plants, and some driftwood, now containing 2 german rams, 1 BNP, and 3 or 4 kribs. Would these be suitable tank mates for your fish?

Hello ,

The meeki are good with other fish of similar size like the kribs, but the rams might get stressed out because they are a smaller fish and not as hardy as the meeki or kribs. But at same time you do only have 6 fish in a 49 gallon tank. Wichita might be ok as they all will have there own territory.

Hope this answers your question
