    hello, I went to petco today and they had a free adult auratus cichlid so i took him, is it normal when adding a new fish into cichlid tanks that the dominant male of my tank (red zebra) will chase him around up on him joining the tank?

    very normal..when adding africans, its best to add 4-6 at a time ..with plenty of hiding spots, he should be ok...auratus are mean buggers..especially males
