1 Attachment(s)
atm i have a 55g tank with lots of rocks in a clif like formation (ill upload some pics soon!!) in that tank i have (and all are male from what i can tell) 2 jack dempsey 2 fire mouths 2 convict and one pleco. i was woundering if there are any other type of cichlids i can add with these and what you guys would sugest. all the fish are relitivly small atm about a inch or so each besides the pleco hes about 3 inches. i was thinking maybe a few yellow electric? what do you guys think. ok heres a pic of the tank i know i got the airline hose in front but my ferret decided its a toy so i had to put it where i can watch if she grabs ahold of it lol

not sure about what other species of chilids you can keep in there but the tanks looking good..perfect for chilids indeed

I wouldn't add anymore cichlids. You may have issues if any of them pair up. One pair of JD's will fill a 55 gallon. Do you know the sex of any of the fish?

thankes kitten and jeaninel i thought they were all males but i was going off of pictures from the net of what males looked like vs females. guess what... i was wrong lol i have a spawning pair od convics with about 300 ish fry in a hole they dug out under one of the rocks on the bottom. so yeah needless to say im not adding any new fishies the this tank whats there seems to be fine and happy lol
