Subject: firemouth cichlid
can a pair of firemouth cichlid ( cichlasoma meeki ) be kept in a
quite-heavily planted tank ? or will they destroy everything onsight ?
and can i mix them with ...let's say a school of big rummy nose tetra, or
neon tetras and the likes ? >>
I have kept and breed these on several occasions. First off they are
definitely aggressive to most other species especially those that are smaller
than they are. Next off I have had a single pair completely uproot a 55
tank overnight when they decided they wanted to breed.
Personally I would not put them into a planted tank. I'd give them loads of
and if I were going to give them tank mate I would make them other South
American Chichlids like Jack Dempies.
