Cichlid Questions
 
Could i keep one or two cichlids in a 20 gallon tank for example the demasoni cichlids or the electric yellow cichlids that only grow to 5".... another question are cichlids aggressive towards all other fish including each other? When I get my new tank Im giving my old 20 gallon to my brother and he is very interested in the cichlids but i know nothing about them.:-)


Thx:-D

I'm by no means a Cichlid expert but I have had the same ones for 3 1/2 years now in a 55 gallon tank. I have 8 of them and they are all about 5-6 inches, one is about 8 inches now. They are semi aggressive fish and should not be in with other fish except their own kind. I do have one Pleco in the tank as well, had him for about 2 years now, but he's about the same size as them, and they were much smaller than him when I got him. Some of mine do chase each other around the tank sometimes though but I have never had any casualties due to it...

I have 4 in a 20 gallon tank, and they seem to be fine. They are still very territorial though........which is nature.
