One South American in my tank

Post by achinni69 »

Acquired a "Blue Acara" last month for my 75 gallon tank. He is residing with 3 Central American Cichlids being: Jack Dempsey, Black Convict and a Rainbow Cichlid. He is healthy but i slightly the smallest of the bunch.

Hi Achinni,

You have to keep an eye on it, because South American Cichlids can me more timid than Central American Cichlids, so keep an eye out for any one getting bullied. I am glad to hear it is going okay with the mix, make sure you have some cover; cave, PVC, Castle, so one can get away if they are being chased.

Cichlid Power!
