My cichlids

Found out that my cichlids are not Demasoni... they are Kenyi Cichlids. I have since my last posting setup my 55 g and got a 36 g bowfront. I have nine cichlids and two pictus catfish. the problem seems that the pictus are so active and aggressive that the cichlids cant establish themselves so about anarchy is the word in my tank. the dominate female is dominate but has no spot in the tank that is hers.
My mollies and platies have the 36 gallon and seem to love it.
had the mollie male in with the cichlids but had to remove him as he was trying to mate with them and had them all on the run... funny a horny mollie can scare a bunch of cichlids.

I had that same thing happen when I put a male endlers livebearer in my planted tank, he was determined to mate with my honey gourami girls and I had to take him out. If your worried about the cichlids you might have to re-home the catfish to let them settle in and find their territories.

Just added two more Yellow labs and three jalo reef afras.
My Pictus cats got onto a fight yesterday but none hurt. the one is growing a little belly... earher eating well or ready to lay eggs. my dominate yellow is a male not a female... he seems like he really wants to breed with one of my sub females but she seems not interested and the dominate female is getting jelous

Impossible to tell as it is too young, either that or it is a female who wont color up as much as the males will.
