Best of luck to you. :22:
Will that still be their tank when they're adults, too? I'm not very well educated on big predators yet. o-o
Slowly, but surely, I'm learning, though!

Good luck with them! My aro doesn't bother my fronts at all, and vice versa. He may go after the little guys though.

Just make sure that the little guys are bigger than the arros mouth!
When they fit easily they are fair game.

Thanks. So far they all ignore the aro, the aro on the other hand doesnt seem to understand the cichlids, he will swim down in lower water and check them out, so far so good!!

Lots of caves and places to hide will prevent your smaller ones from being eaten... but don't be surprised if any go missing. :hmm3grin2orange:
