- Can I keep any other fish along with BRP's? If yes, then I plan to keep 2 BRP's and a a few of the other fish. If I can't keep other fishes, then I'll only keep BRP's. Tank Details:
Tank Size: 36" (L) X 24" (W) X 18" (H)
Capacity: 65 Gallons
Filtration: 2 X Internal Power Filters @ 1200 L/H (each)
Heaters: 2 X 100 Watts Thermostats
Substrate: River Sand
Decorations: Clay Pots, Medium-Rocks, Driftwood
Thanks and Regards,
Hey, yeah I like BPs too and have kept them in past - interesting hybrids.
I've found them to be very individual, while one BP will get along with all the other fish in the tank even smaller ones than themselves others will ram their tankmates (the former are more common though in my experience). A good bet is keeping them with other larger New World cichlids.
They get pretty big, possibly 10" and that's a solid 10" due to their deep bodies. With 2 in a 65 I might just get maybe a severum. A jack might be too aggressive for them.
