    Default Exotic Aquatics & More

    New store for us OKC area fish folks. They are at 1009 SE 15th ST Ste 9 OKC OK 73129. 4zerofive- six7two-nine2zero5


    The store is still under construction but they are up and running with a bunch of nice Malawi cichlids at this time. They have more in stock than that but lots of nice malawi for sure. I purchased a nice looking neolamprologus leleupi from them. Their hours are Wed-Sat 9am to 6pm and Sunday by appt.

    Im anxious to see his shop now that I've heard about it. Im fairly new with my cichlid tank and am looking to put some variety into it!

    Anyone know of any other shops that sell african cichlids in the OKC area?

    OKC proper, none... Edmond there is Aquariums and Tropical Fish on Kelley Avenue... Mustang (far northeast Mustang) there is Tanks-A-Lot that is off Reno and CzechHall Road (I'm pretty sure that's the right corner, he moved a couple times close by and I get mixed up) and then in Norman there is Wet Pets on Porter. Those are about the only places I go to in the metro. There are more in Tulsa and I know a lot in Texas as well. looking for anything in specific? Kyle

    Not really anything specific just yet. As I read up more about cichlids I am finding a lot of different ones that I like. I have found it’s easier to talk the wife into letting me spend money on them if they are colorful.

    Then you want mbunas then, they are the most colorful of the cichlid world although many will argue with me but since you are beginning I would go with mbunas.

    Of those Lion cove yellow labs and probably demasoni would give you a great colorful contrast.

    How big a tank?

    75 gallon corner tank.

    I have a bumblebee cichlid, 3 kenyi cichlids, a red zebra cichlid, 2 albino cichlids, a jewel cichlid, an electric yellow cichlid, and a clown loach. the bumblebee is the largest at about 2 inches.

    Not really sure how many i can put in the tank before overcrowding it.

    Depends on your filtration, African Cichlids should be crowded which does go against convention but it minimizes aggression.

    Ive got a marineland c220 filter. Dont really know how well it compares to others, but it has done a great job so far. I plan to add a uv sterilizer soon as well.
