Festivum cichlid with more aggressive cichlids

Postby Cichlids_Dude » Tue Apr 11, 2017 10:26 am

Hi, im thinking of buying 3 festivums to my 140 gallon with my Blue Acara and Firemouth pairs. Do you have experience of festivums with more aggressive fish and do you think they would go with my fish?

Festivums occupy the top third of the tank, so they would probably stay above the fray.
150 Gallon:
Geophagus, Angelfish
90 Gallon:
Bolivian Rams, Rummynoses, Corys, Dwarf Loaches, Neons, Glass Catfish

My experience with Festivums is the same as mambee - they are a good tankmate for this reason.
