  1. Default Jewel Cichlid Aggression Question

    0 Not allowed!
    I have read allot about them on here over the years, as I have always wanted one. I understand that the general consensus is that they are basically little raptors with fins. But in every account I have read on here, the fishkeeper had a breeding pair. My question is, what if I don't get a breeding pair? What if I just get one, will it still be as aggressive?

    Right now I have a good size and growing Festivum, and a full grown Male Bolivian, both are pretty aggressive. My plan would be those two, one Jewel, and maybe 2 or 4 kribs. Based on articles I have read, those should all be compatible, if perhaps a little risky, what do you guys think?

    50g, lots of rock-work and plants.

    Can be aggressive by themselves also,Although it depends on the jewel species(cristatus,lillafi,are more peaceful).The "iffy" part is the ram surviving.Give it a try,or put a tank divider in ,to monitor aggression.

    One or two, in my experience didn't make a difference. They will bully almost any fish, even those much bigger than themselves.
