When you add more then one and get a male. They will indeed tear up the tank, rearange your plant, and dig pits in the sand. You should be ok with just a couple fake plants, I wouldnt do real as they will eat most real. The are vegatarian. The Peacocks's are a little less agressive then most other Mbuna's, Malawi's.

Hahaha fishs name has been changes to Charlie, my kid said so! If I got a 40 gallon long does that limit that to me to 4 or so cichlids ? The reason I got this one was because it and another were harrassing a breeding pair of dwarf cichlids in a 55 gallon.

What kind of dwarf cichlids? If it was an American dwarf cichlid of some type, I'm not surprised at all. For mbuna tanks I think it's good to have a decent amount of front-to-back depth in the tank as that allows for more substantial rock formations. I think a 40g breeder might be better than a longer tank. That said, if you could get a 75g, you'd really be in business.

Well I got an email from a buddy who just happens to want to upgrade to a 90 gallon this winter which means he needs to sell his 65 bowfront. If thats still up for grabs I'm taking it! I'm just nervous about getting a bigger tank, stacking rocks then having them fall and break the tank or squish the fish.

You can always silicone rocks together if you're really worried. I like stacking up flatter rocks, though, and piles of flat rock are really hard to knock over.
