    Pics are a breeze. Just go wherever you have them stored and copy the IMG link. Then come here and paste it in as so much text. It works on almost any forum and comes out like this.

    This betta shared my endler tank for over 4 years so forget all about those mean nasty bettas. He was as docile as they come and would feed on flake food along with the endler fry.

    I have Mollies and Platys with 2 Firemouth's, The adult Mollies and Platys fine the Firemouths do not touch them, But most of the fry get eaten  and the Firemouths get fat.

    The cichlids will take the fry but that's kind of a good thing as molly's ect can be prolific breeders a friend of mine started with 3 a couple of months ago now he has over 20 but he brought an angel fish to keep numbers down and seems to be working so in my opinion some cichlids are great for this not all tho as some are really aggressive :)

    This could change as the fish matures.

    You need to identify the actual species as soon as possible, or your could have big problems ahead.

    Hi Stephanie and welcome to the forum :)

    If you start a new thread (this one is from a couple of years ago) and post a picture of your cichlid, we should be able to ID it for you. Most cichlids are fine when young but as they mature they can start to become a problem. :)

    Hi I am new here but I saw this thread and though I'd throw in my own 2 cents for what it's worth. I keep mollies with kribensis cichlids in a community tank and they seem to get along just fine. I have a roughly 4ft*2ft*2ft aquarium which I have kept both species in for more than 2 years now and both have even bred successfully in that time. Kribeneis fish seem to love caves/pipes etc. where as the Molly fish seem to prefer the open water so they don't really get in the way. I'm sure there is far more experience in here than I can offer but this is my own experience.
