Why is it ?


Recommended Posts

Why is it that all the fish i like are aggressive ???

I have a 4"2"2 Tank and currently have

5 x Frontosers 1 x 15cm and 4 x 5cm

2 x Red emperas 12cm each

3 x Princess Barchardi 4cm each

1 x BN cat fish 9cm

I am keen to get some new fish to add to my display tank and all the fish i seam to like the look of are to aggressive.....

What are your thought on what i can/should add to my tank to give it a new look.

To give you an idear of what i was looking at was- Blue Demasoni, Jaguar,

I was thinking Afra Cobue ?? Red top black bar ?? Xmas fulu ?? Electric yellow ??

Any idears would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers BMR

Princess Brichardi are just agressive by nature but maybe the Frontosas/Protomelas may need more space once they get bigger? What is the male/female ratio?

My preference for stocking a tank is to add a few species of fish of the same lake but different specialisations - like electric yellow (rock dweller), white lip mdoka (open sand blue follower) & Protomelas Steveni Taiwan reef (intermediate zone) and then add a rocky area with open area in tank.

I have a 5x 2x 2.5 tank which has about 50+ mixed cichlids (mostly different species with a few larger groups) in it, I have had them for about the last 2 years and have found that none of them have argued with each other at all. when I do my water changes I take the 60+kg of rocks of the tank, and rearrange them when they go back in, I think this could be a reason why they don't fight- that they aren't able to set up their own territories. Don't know if this is helpful information to you but, that's what i do with my tank.
