Thread: 118g SA/CA Cichlid Tank

If the EBJD is your centerpiece, don't get anymore cichlids. Sajica's can be mean to other fish that are close to its size. The Green Terror is a hit and miss for compatibility, and the same goes for a Firemouth.
The Red striped eartheaters can get to 12", so adding 3 of these would require quite a bit of work to keep your water parameters in check.
I would just add at least 5 Spotted Metynnis.

Thanks Rocksor. The Sevs are actually my centrepieces, I'm considering taking the EBJD back because it hides whenever anyone enters the lounge. I do an 80% change on my 65g every week. I could get away with much less probably but I feed them more than I should.

Since you are thinking about removing the EBJD, and keeping the severums, then the possibility of having an all female or all male sajica group would work. The severums would be large enough and occupy the top half of the aquarium; the sajica would tend to leave them alone.
Sajicas don't hide like EBJD, and are a really nice blue coloring.
