Introduction size - New tank

Recommended Posts

My new tanks cycle is almost complete, converted from salt to fresh water. 400L tank. Should I introduce the cichlids small or grown?

I honestly don't think it matters.  It comes down to what you prefer, instant impact vs watching them grow, and what is available to buy

Thanks Skippy, everything I’ve read says if they are introduced large it will make it harder to introduce more large fish as they’ll be more territorial.

If they get territorial try moving around the tank decor to break up the established territories
