    have a school of barbs with a BN Pleco in a 30 gallon. would a yellow lab be compatible with them. How bout if I added a convict as well?

    yellow labs require different foods and water specs than the fish you currently have...and a convict would probably tear up your barbs :(

    Any cichlid you would recommend for this size tank? I would really like a centerpiece fish and my barbs are a force to reckon with. :(

    Hello. You will find the lab to be docile semi - aggressive. The convict on the other hand is highly aggresive. If I was you, and wanted to keep the barbs I wouldn't place the convict. Also you barbs are different habitat. Do some more research.
    You might think of getting a Ram (Mikrogeophagus ramirezi).This is a dwarf cichlid from south america.
    size 2.5 in.
