Fronts withBlack mollys, and platie

I woul like to add Fronts with my Mollys and Platies. I know that Fronts are the less aggresive of the Cichlids so does anyone see a problem? Any personel experience would be appriciated.

What size is the tank? The frontosas are going to eat your fish, no pun intended.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I wouldn't put the fronts in there. If this tank is a community, there is no way for you to accomplish that without having the fronts eat the fish. They are better off in a tank dedicated to Lake Tanganyikan cichlids.

Thanks maybe I will move the Mollys and Platy now what about the Pleco would he be safe? I have only raised nasty oscars this is why I have so many questions. My Oscars were all raised in a very large tank and they had tussles but they were all about the same size so it always wored out. And I ment nasty in a good way.

I would also add that if you have Frontosas in a Tanganyikan Community tank, they need to be with fish that they cannot swallow.
