If you want a peaceful tank, some central and African cichlids are very aggressive. That's why they are usually the ones to make up a cichlid only tank without smaller fish. Most often, smaller community fish are mixed in with docile SA cichlids like angelfish and rams/apistos. Others like severum and acara aren't terribly aggressive, but would be better with large fish or cichlid- only.Fishkeeping With Andy said:So then, it would be pretty hard to make a mixed cichlid tank?
I do! With a tank that size, you can, so why not? Other fish can be kept in smaller aquaria.Fishkeeping With Andy said:So you dont think I should do a cichlid tank? Even if it is a community one?
