Would these fish be Compatible in a 75g?

Postby 1020thirty » Sat Nov 21, 2020 3:46 am

Hello, I am pretty new to this hobby and just recently purchased a 75-gallon tank. I really want to create a South American Cichlid tank and am wondering if the following fish be compatible together.
1 x Gold Nugget Pleco L177 (Baryancistrus sp. L177)
1 x Severum (Heros efascticious)
2 x Firemouth (Thorichthys meeki)
1 x Jewel Cichlid (Hemichromis bimaculatus)
1 x Salvini Cichlid (Cichlasoma Salvini)

Actually not a good mix. You have African, South and Central American. Salvini is normally a very dangerous tankmate for those that can't compete. The FM and Severum may be ok together, I suggest no to the Jewel and Sal
1500 gallons of South and Central American cichlids. Some with a "wee" bit of attitude.
