Just another question, i do have two more tanks, one is 40 gals which is empty right now. the other one is 30 Gals and I am using it as community tank. Currently in my 30 gals i have 4 zebra danios, 5 silver tips, 2 cat fish and a pleco... do you think the 30gals tank with this much fish can fit two more firemouth cichlids? And can i put the rest of them into my new 40 gals tank? Thanks... benny
As your firemouths are still young, a 40 gallons should accommodate all your firemouths. Allow them to grow and if you plan to breed, allow them to pair. Once you obtain a pair or two, you can sell the rest and put a pair in a 35g and another in a 40g. It is up to you how many pairs you want. I wouldn't however place them in a community. It is far too risky and at 5-6 inches in size, they will surely consume the tetras and danios and even harass the catfishes once they spawn.
