swap to cichlids?
i am wondering whether i should sell my 60 litre community tank for a cichlids only tank. every petstore ive been to said most cichlids are not community fish but youcan get a good variety just like a community tank

I have a cichlids community tank. Severum, firemouths a parrot and black skirt tetras. You just have to be careful what you mix and be prepared if they don't get along.Greatest Guitar Forum Ever

Brave and/or tough little tetras. Surprised the Sevs and Firemouth don't treat them as food.

I have a Uaru, Severum, Convict, Loaches, and various Tetra (Red Eye & Gold) in a community tank. I never even see as much as a nipped fin in the tank. Cichlid community tanks can EASILY be done with some research and planning.-Jordan

My severum doesn't like fish with horizontal lines (kribs, minnows, barbs etc)
but the black skirts are round with a vertical "comma" mark. He just seems to ignore them. He did eat 3 of the red minors that I put in, I have moved the other 3 to another tank.Greatest Guitar Forum Ever
