    small spot madagascar cichlid (polleni) is a rather primitive cichlid. Good looking and aggressive. They are easy to care for and prefer pH 7.5-8.5.

    They grow to be 10 inches.

    All cichlids ( I think) have teeth.

    You should be able to keep them with your oscars if you get a large tank. (that sweet 400 g perhaps) The tank should be decorated so that the bottom is divided into several sections (natural territorial borders) and preferably so that there isn't a clear line of site through the entire tank. Plants are not necessary.

    OK. just remebr that those need pure saltware and should not be kept in brackish water.
