OK, thanks for the advice. I guess I need to get the stuff to set up the 10 gallon tank for temporary housing for the chichlids. One more thing though, how long can I safely keep the two chichlids in the 10 gallon. This would be the only 2 fish in the tank and of course I would provide the proper filtering and hiding spots ect.

I moved this to the Freshwater Basics forum, the original post was located here.

There is a bit of a problem with housing your cichlids in a 10 gallon. They will need to be moved into a larger tank (like 50 gallons) within a week or so, but setting them up in a 10 gallon would likely result in them having to stay there much longer.

Consider trading them back to the store until you can provide the right conditions for them, and concentrate on getting your community tank healthy again. That is what I would do if I were in your situation.
Happy fishkeeping!
