    Hi! I have been growing out two african cichlids in my 55 gallon community. They are starting to become aggressive with my community fish and I am getting worried about some of them. They are about 1.5-2 inches long and I am wondering when I should put them in my 36 gallon african cichlid tank (I am working towards a 55 gallon for them (or a 40 gallon breeder)).

    lol the cichlids in the 36 we basically full grown, however my 2.5-3 inch Oscar did (and is doing) well. What do you think? Thanks :)

    P.S. my firemouth cichlids currently have babies in the tank and are protecting them

    EDIT: @Coptapia @richie.p what do you guys think?

    Hi! I moved them in today after a tank cleaning (and re-scape) and they seem to be doing well. The babies are in a separate breeding net as well now :)
