Keyholes?
 
So I am working on a restocking list for my 55gallon, and I am getting keyhole cichlids and I wanted to see what everyone's opinion is keeping them with glowlights. I know they are a timid cichlid, do you think enough so to keep them with glowlight tetras, and if I do get them how many should I get? I was thinking along the lines of 2-3.

If Keyhole's are juveniles, they prolly would not pose a threat to the glowlight's. Hard to predict with cichlids when they begin to mature and grow larger. Three keyholes sound's about right for 55 gal.
Might were it me,look for tetras or barbs a little larger than Glowlights.

Agreed. Keyholes aren't huge but neither are glowlights very large tetras.
