    Default Striped Raphael Catfish question

    Quick question! I have about a 3-4 inch Striped Raph catfish and my boyfriend really wants cichlids in the tank, it's 29 gallon btw and.... soo my question is compatability, can they coexist together peacefully in the tank without me having to scoop out dead fish all the time?
    Thx in advance 😊🙄

    Depends on the cichlids that you get. In such a small tank, your choices are limited. A pair of rainbow cichlids would do fine if. you have hard water. If you have soft water, a pair of bolivian rams would work.

    If you keep the striped raphael long enough, it will get up to 7" long and about 2" thick, which is a big bioload on that tank.
