Any cichlid owners out there?
I have a male convict who is currently about 2 inches in length. He is currently growing out in a ten gallon until I get a 55, but was wondering...
I've received suggestions on tankmates for him ranging from sajica (t bar), firemouth, jack dempsey (pretty sure the JD would be too large for a 55?), salvini, green terror (also think may be too large), pictus/raphael cat ( if I added any of these, I'd wait til I had a larger tank), and rainbow cichlid (which my LFS doesn't carry to my knowledge). If anything is purchased, it will be around the same size of the cichlid, slightly smaller/larger depending on aggression and such. I really like the firemouth, but I keep hearing these horror stories about convicts whooping them pretty good, and I'm really leaning toward the salvini now, though I may have to get one by order. I've heard next to nothing about sajica. Help?
