Compatability is a strange issue. There are general cautions to be noted but of course there are always exceptions.

I'm with Lupin though, I'd add another 3-4 cories because they like to be in numbers and also from a more selfish point of view, they are much more fun to watch in a shoal.

The spines don't prevent an attack and usually cause damage to both fish and sometimes ends in death of one or both of the fish. I've seen happen time and time again.

It will only be a matter of time before something damaging happens. As far as we know, several cichlids have varying personalities and they can change the way they behave unpredictably.

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.
