PostSubject: any ideas   Thu Jun 11, 2009 8:48 pm

i have a 70g 4ft tank and was thinking of doing in with the comunity for a bit of colour

i went down to a lfs (first time i have been their) and noticed a
really actractive fish called the juwel cichlid one of the staff said
it would be quite happy in my tank with the other comunity fish (didnt
buy one tho thank god) i have now looked them up and turns out they can
be a bit naughty towards my other fish

but my query is if i was to go for the juwels then what sort of fish
would be comapatable for this size of tank and these types of fish

As far as I know kbekl, these can be quite an aggressive fish (as most cichlids), especially if they pair up and want to breed. I dont ave experience of them, but think I have read that they need to be kept in a single species tank, but would have to check on that.

Many of my fish books say to avoid jewels at all costs unles you only want to keep that species - the plecs would probably be safe - but as for the ret - well - Id do some real research 1st tbh

Plecs or synodontis I'd say, I had a Jewel that would square up to an Oscar more than twice its size!
