    I have a 55 gal that I know is going to be massively overstocked but I'm cycling a second 55 right now to divide them up. According to what I understand what I have should have killed each other by now. How old do fish usually get there aggression? I have a 6in Oscar a 4in Dempsey 3 convicts a peacock cichlid a jewel and red jewel both female 3 mixed s.a. cichlids 2 12" rope fish a dinosaur eel bicher 4 3" balas a redtail and a rainbow. Can you guys help me sort them into a livable situation. They have all been fine together for 3months. The only aggression I see is the red tail harassing the rainbow.

    Please post a picture of this tank.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Unfortunately cycling another 55 ain't gona solve all your problems. Balas grow to over a foot long, same with oscars, so neither of these fish are viable for a 55g
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Maximum size for Rope Fish is very close to 3 feet, so they will eventually be no good for a 55g too.
    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    The peacock should not be involved at all, totally different requirements than the new world cichlids you have. I don't know much on how to split them up, but definitely put the biggest and most aggressive in the 6 footer.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.
