COVER T 0711

About the Cover

Up close and personal, that's the stunning photography of cichlid enthusiast Mo Devlin. This Nandopsis haitiensis is as tough as he looks-nicknamed the black nasty, this fish is not for squeamish hobbyists! More than a foot long and with a truly nasty attitude, this cichlid is well worth the trouble, at least for many "cichlidiots," like those attending the American Cichlid Association (ACA) Convention July 21-24, 2011 in Washington, D.C.

Tip of the Month:

Unless you have very soft water, you will eventually have to deal with "lime" buildup. When water evaporates, dissolved minerals are left behind as a white film or crust. A razor blade can remove much of the deposit, but this will scratch plastic badly. An easier and dust-free method for glass, plastic, or any other surface is to use a scrubbing pad dampened with household vinegar. The dilute acid quickly dissolves the minerals, and a thorough rinse removes any remaining vinegar.
