I wouldn't test it but probably not. by work do you mean get a long, if so you would need a large tank if you want pairs.

38 gallon :
Pelvicachromis Taeniatus Nigerian Red not yet breeding pair
4 Pangio Kuhli
12 Hemmigrammus Bleheri
2 Botia Lohachata
1 Botia Straita
1 Ancistrus Sp.
6 Poecilia Reticulata




The Wet Spot Portland Oregon!!!!!!

ADA: Do!aqua Iwagumi 10 gallon size!
7 Clown Killies
7 Ghost shrimp

Agree. All of the South American "dwarf" cichlids are very similar in requirements and behaviours, generally speaking, and they view each other as "threats" especially when spawning. Unless you have at least a 4-foot tank, I would not mix species.

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]

don't, i've tried that once and the GBR suffered. they might be both beautiful but not worth putting them together.
