Will any of these live well together, if so how many, what male to female ratio would you reccomend?
Bolivian ram Cichlid
Lemon Drop Cichlid
Flag Acara Cichlid
Also would any catfish live with them? I was thinking a common Plec, i love Cory cats but i dont think they would do well.
I also havent kitted it out yet so reccomendations for filters and such is much appreciated :D
What fun to have that large of tank to stock! I don't know much about African cichlids, but that could be a fantastic tank. I only have one Bolivian Ram, as I've heard even a female/male pair won't always do to good together - male can harass the female to death. In the wild, they are only together with their own species during spawning. However, in a tank that size there may be more room to spread out aggression.
If I had a tank that large I'd put in a number of Bosemani Rainbow fish. Love the colors and their beauty! Are you sold on a cichlid only tank?
