I don't know near enough about cichlids to help you out too much. I just know for some reason i like oscars lolMistacliff said:The Oscar always seemed on the ugly side to me.
I’m not sure how well it would go together but what about
1 blood parrot
1 green severum
1 green terror
5 silver dollars
1 blue acara
And then I know people have said they would be too small in a 65 gallon but maybe with the extra space
If not what else might go with this stocking? Or is this a terrible mix all together?
Also a geophagus
That would be more like something i would do. A community of some big schools. Or like 2 or 3 bluegill i caught.Pfrozen said:Seems like such a waste to do a few large cichlids in a tank like that, but we all have our own preferences. I would do a freshwater community personally. Maybe 18 scissortail rasboras, 30 palateus cory, 50 neons, 12 SAE, 12 pearl gourami, neocaridina shrimp, etc. Just as a quick example
I’m fairly open to ideas but I definitely want some kind of centerpiece fish. For me the point of the larger tank is to have more options of the centerpiece fish.StinkyLoaf said:Thanks! He’s a very interactive fish.
Could work, I’ve never kept severums but they grow to a similar size to green terrors and the tank is very large. I don’t know much about severums so maybe somebody else can comment on them for you.
Are there any other fish that might interest you or are you settled on the severums with the terror?
I think the above is a good idea, if you get them all as juveniles it should work out, you might have to move some of the severums later on, or maybe not. I also wonder if you could have a group of festivums. I am not sure if the GT would be too aggressive for them, but they do inhabit the higher water levels, so if you had plenty of structure, branches etc. It might work and would look good. I have never tried it though, often with cichlids you just have to try something and be prepared to move any if it doesn’t work out.StinkyLoaf said:The best bet is to get a group of a fish species and a single fish of another species that stands out on it’s own. The severums/terror combo will produce this feel.
