Spotted some of these the other day and just wondered if they're suitable for a community tank? I currently have one Bolivian Ram and an Angelfish in the three foot tank, along with Pearl Gouramis, Zebra Loaches, plecs. Would it get along with these?

Hmmm... I don't know about them with the ram and angels, I kept a firemouth with gouramis and it was fine though. (until the clarias ate it Shocked )

Well I did a little bit of online research and discovered that they grow to about 15cm which is bigger than I'd realized so I think that I will stick with my "safe" cichlids. :lol:

Indeed. Although it's also good to get first hand experience from other fish owners. Wink
