Compatibility Question
Will Cockatoo Apistos work with GBR's

I wouldn't test it but probably not. by work do you mean get a long, if so you would need a large tank if you want pairs.

Agree. All of the South American "dwarf" cichlids are very similar in requirements and behaviours, generally speaking, and they view each other as "threats" especially when spawning. Unless you have at least a 4-foot tank, I would not mix species.

yepp... In my fish book it says the I have killies are good dither fish for GBRs would you put a pair with the killies I have whih are in the signature?

raleej337 05-08-2011 04:47 PM

don't, i've tried that once and the GBR suffered. they might be both beautiful but not worth putting them together.
