    Compatible tank mates for bumblebee cichlid

    I adopted him a few weeks back from a friend. He was killing her other cichlids, so i wasn't going to bother with stocking the tank. But after much consideration, id like to try it.

    Just wondering why?

    I'm wondering why people breed their fish on purpose? If you have a proper aquarium for them then that's a different story. But why are people trying to breed their bettas (just an example) what are you going to do with 20 bettas?? When my molly drop fry i don't allow them to stay in the tank...
