Sorry I thought okiemavis was thinking of one Cichlid in the tank,
I agree a pair of breeding kribs may not have been ideal but
a single specimen would have been fine.

Yup! I was planning on just a single specimen. Only because I know not having a breeding pair will reduce aggression, and I'm really not interested in breeding.

i have a young jack dempsey that gets along with everyone in my tank, but like everyone says its the individual fish's personality.

Wow, that's lucky. Although I'd have to say, I would worry about my smaller fish disappearing as my JD got older, but I suppose you're already planning for that.

Alright my 55 turned into a 75 which turned into an 85 which I'm picking up on Sunday at 2pm. Why yes, I do have a fish problem. *bounces*

So I'd have to say that space isn't really a problem at this point. I've heard that frontosa can be very gentle, but how expensive are they? Are they delicate fish?

Corys are hard to eat- they've got those spines on their fins! They tend to get stuck in fish's mouths, so the cory should be fine for now. He'll definitely outlive the platies at least. I love cories!
