    T-bar cichlids

    Iv been looking at ordering a fish for Xmas and it’s between red spotted severum or t-bar cichlids, and I’m leaning towards the t-bar but it would mean introducing a Central American to an all South American tank , off a bit of research I’m sure it would be an ok match , what you guys think ...
