New Fish Tank Tips: Get an aquarium filter that has multiple (2) media cartridges. This will allow you to change out one at a time. If you swap out all of the filter media with new media you run the risk of having to go through a mini aquarium cycle. Good power filters that hang on the back of the tank usually come with a separate floss system that you never have to change.

Vieja synspila (formerly Cichlasoma synspilum) also known as the quetzel cichlid, redhead cichlid or firehead cichlid is a large (30 cm, 12 in) Central American cichlid fish species. It is one of the most colourful cichlid species with males displaying metallic green, blue, green, pink and orange along their flanks. Vieja synspila has been used in creating new hybridized aquarium cichlids that became popular in Asia in recent years. Vieja synspila is probably one of the parents of modern blood parrot cichlids and flowerhorn cichlids.
