hello who ever ponders past this i have some questions about fire-mouths and their compatibility with my tank mates?
- i have a 55 gallon that is home to -
- 10 harla rasboras
-6 odessa barbs
- 1 pleco
i was wondering about adding a centerpiece cichlid. i like firemouths in particular would there be a chance if i could add one?
if not maybe some angels?
something gennerally easy to find, at a lfs? :)
1 firemouth cichlid should be fine in your setup. Buy him small tho. 1 angelfish should be ok too. Assuming you get just one of either.
I don't think a firemouth is a good idea as they can eat small fish when they're grown, like the rasboras
Bolivian rams are an option to consider
If you add a small, 1 or 2 inch Firemouth, you should be okay but there is always a risk of him eating the smaller fish. Some other cichlids you could go with are Cupid Cichlids, Keyholes, Bolivian Rams, and you could also try a species of Gourami
It is possilbe some fish could be eatin if they are small but that's with any fish. I would say try a small one. Keep him well fed and buy him young I don't think it will be a problem. But the fish ElectricBlueJackDempsey suggested will defiantly be a better fit.
I would not recommend a Firemouth with those small fish. While it is "peaceful" for a cichlid, it is still a cichlid, and at 7 inches should not be housed with fish other than appropriately-sized ones. The Odessa Barb is the only fish listed that should be suitable.
As for angels, they should be in a group of 5+ as they are shoaling fish. A 55g is fine for this, although the active Odessa Barb are not good tankmates. And the guppies will be eaten for certain once the angels are mature.
They were referring to the name of the person not the fish
i have seen some geo's that i liked but i dont really remember the name it was some tapajos red head idk would that be compatible, or at least could you name some more common geos that could work in my tank?
