oscar and redheaded cichlid

Postby aymeh21 » Fri Aug 19, 2011 9:10 pm

I just purchased a redheaded cichlid today and he is currently floating. I have an oscar that is about 6 inches right now and the redhead is about 4.5 inches.

Would it be all right to house these two together in a 55 for now?

You'tr going to have to be a little more specific on the "redheaded cichlid" There's quite a few with red heads. :) :wink:

I'd say you have a very short amount of time, I'd also say that they might not make great tank mates no matter the size of the tank... Now, if it were a red head severum then we'd be talking something totally different.... Synspilum have the ability cause major havoc... For no aparent reason some times...

The search for a new tank begins.....and where to put it! Ha. I appreciate your help. This is what I get for buying compulsively...I just had to have him though.

They are awesome fish, I have bred them in the past... Not the easiest fish to sex but the sheere size of their spawns were amazing!

Will a 55 be enough for him alone? Is there possible tank mates?

I know now this is completely off topic and in the wrong section...sorry!

Eh, I'd say 75.... They are very robust cichlids...
