    Im still on the fence about how i would like to go about converting my 55g setup up to a CA community Tank. Im still looking for suggestions Possibilities before i give the go ahead to my LFS to order what i want. So Plz Throw stuff out that works for you , would work good, doesnt hurt to try , just anything plz thnks. i want to Build Around the FireMouths.

    My plan that im leaning towards
    2-3 FireMouths
    1 Convict
    1 Blue Acara
    10-12 Columbian Tetras ( As Dithers )
    1-2 Syno Cats

    The Tank will have a Sand bottom With rocks as caves and a few Fake Plants and a few Real Plants...

    I would leave the con out unless it is female. Honestly I would get 6 Firemouths and grow them out until a pair is formed then trade the 4 spares into the LFS and consider picking up a female con and an acara later on. Be careful buying Synos many of them grow quite large, and honestly I would stick to more of a SA catfish considering the requirements of your tetras.

    So a pair would work with other fish ? i always thought and got replies that once the FM start to mate anything in the tank besides dithers are in danger ... And what type of cats are SA? I was thinking of pictus ? but yea thanks for the reply . and i can only do a single con and acara with the pair ?

    I would go with Bn or another smaller pleco instead of the syno cats. I think the convict would be too much as well. The other cichlids will fill the tank nicely.

    And be aware the firemouths start spawning very early and spawn constantly. I had to cull 400 of them because I simply could not find a way to get rid of them all.

    No convict and I would also not add tetra's. Perhaps some giant danio's.

    at this moment i dont feel like dishing out the cash to fill the tank with driftwood thats why i was thinking of syno cats since they can handle if being bullied....

    Another idea i thought of was as pair of blue acara FM and two other cichlids . I mainly want each fish to have its on identity so like a can single them out thats what im going for and variety.
