Thanks everyone. Helps alot hes really good to look at and the most active and fun to watch. what would be a couple of compatible types of fish to go with him? Yeah he's a bit of a bully but he doesn't hurt the others he just chases them around. And kudo's on the fish the colouration is really nice.

Cichilds always chase around other fish, its what they do. If hes not doing any damage id just keep the ones you have.

there is chasing and there is chasing

my Dovii will have the odd chase of a fish that gets near them or there bit of the tank

my GT will go out of its way to bother, chase and up-set fish he can, some of them when they was in the 4foot got stress RIGHT out by him

but yeah if you fish are doing fine with him keep it that way if your happy with it

I am glad that I am not the only person who thinks this! A while back there was a post about GTs and I mistook them for blue acaras and was left feeling silly. I don't feel so silly anymore! :D

Green Terrors aren't just green. My male and female both have quite a lot of blue in them as well, actually. The main factor that differentiates is the white or gold tips on the tail and dorsal, as shown in the fish in question. The question fish has what looks like white tips, making it a Silver or White saum. Terrors are acaras, so they do look very similar to blue acaras at times. As juveniles, it can be difficult to tell them apart.
