    Default considering a pair of blue acara

    0 Not allowed!
    I am going to be starting up a 150 gallon tank and the fish that I am taking out of my 55 to stock the 150 are 1 marble veil angel, 2 iridescent sharks, 2 gold rams, a pleco, an anostimous , a severum and a pair of rainbows (more to follow). I was wondering if a pair of blue acara would be at home with this mix of fish or if they would raise too much Kane with the others? Thoughts?

    I would think that the acaras would bully the smaller rainbow cichlids but I could be wrong. The iridescent sharks, however, will not be able to exist long term in that tank. Growing 3-4 ft. Long, they are active and social and will likely require a small pond when grown.

    Agree with the the above about the iridescent catfish. In my experience blue acaras mix well with other cichlids as long as they have enough room.
