Aquazoo states: "Pairs of these fish usually get along well together. However, if the female is not ready for the male when he wants to spawn, he may kill her. She should be removed until her eggs are developed."
Has anyone else had any problems with the male being overly aggressive (to the point of physical damage anyway) with the female? Is he really physically aggressive to other tank mates to the point of damage?
Also, I have a new 65g (36x18x24) and am thinking about a mating pair of: Firemouth
, Green Terror, Blue Acara, and possibly a Nicaragua Chichlid.
Are these guys compatible with each other when bought at about the same size? Would these 6-8 fish plus some tank mates and cleaning crew be ok in my size tank? What would good tank mates be for these guys? Does the term dither always mean that they are partially intended as live dinner for the cichlids? And last, what would my choices for good maintenance crew be if these cichlids are the ones that I end up with (based largely on the feedback of you wiser folks!)?
Thanks in advance everyone,
