I guess it would be the same for the smaller German rams too? Would still want to dominate the tank? And what of the guppies? Would they go peacefully with the pearl or would the share too similar a space?

Thank you for your advice :) its nice to get information without feeling like people are just trying to make a sale!

Girlfriend got home and took some amazing pictures with her fancy camera so will put them up tomorrow :)

Given your tank size, I would not add any cichlids with a Pearl. He is going to be the dominant fish, visually and otherwise, so let that be.

Guppies are interesting, I'm not sure. I wouldn't myself, with the rummys. I would look for other soft water but peaceful shoaling fish.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
