No, the A. compressiceps need a pH of about 9.0 since they are from Lake Tanganyika. Convicts are about 7.5 and from Central America. A. compressiceps also need pretty laid back tankmates (if any).

Do you ever check the compatiblity charts?


This is my favorite. Just click on cichlids on the top for easier searching. I constantly am checking my questions thru this site and it helps.

Yes they do and also give suggestions for what you can put with others.
