I haven’t kept salvini but have kept other similar sized CA’s that would be suitable for that size tank eg. Firemouths, Rainbow, Sajica, Spilurum. Salvini are supposed to be a bit more aggressive than those but might work as singles. Can’t say for sure.Sure, it’s 120cm x 40cm x 50cm
Does anyone have any experience with Salvini cichlids?
Folks will have different opinions. It might be doable but my personal preference in a 4 ft tank would be 6" max.Thanks for the input. So what sort of size am I looking at? Up to around 8 inches max? Is that a good guide? If I went with that sort of size could I have 3 different types as singles? Sorry lots of questions!
It might work. There’s no guarantee since individual temperaments vary. Keeping same sex is a good idea since convicts and firemouths can hybridise. The blue acara is SA not CA but nevertheless can be kept with them.That’s fair enough, in terms of variety three single males of for example firemouth, convict and acara would work?
