Wouldn't advise keeping big cichlids with little cichlids, as they will most likely fight.Thx for the feedback!
The tank is a 140L running a big 1200L/h external.
It has a sand substrate, lots of slate and mopani root and some java fern at the moment.
Yesterday Ph was 7.5ish at 25 degrees. (Litmus test! so not very accurate)
I have never kept barbs, but have always been quite tempted.
Some have very cool colourations, will barbs school together in a large group?
I'm not really interested in live bearers, swordtails or rainbow fish.
And I have a good selection of tetra, pleco's and loache's.
So more cichlid's has to be the way forward.
For the bottom of the tank i would like some sort of synodontis catfish or a big pack of Corydoras.
Which of the smaller cichlid's would make suitable tankmates?
Yeah, I wasn't certain the dimensions of the tank, so just threw those in as a possible option.
