I get my female rainbow cichlid later today. I'll let everyone know how it goes. Hopefully she is peaceful, but if not I have someone who will take her for me.

All the info I've read on rainbow cichlids say they are very peaceful. I got her today and she's not exactly peaceful. She was chasing my Cupid cichlid, platies, gudgeons, killifish, etc. I tried to net her because I want to rehome her. I watched the tank for over an hour and she doesn't seem as aggressive. She seems really stressed and scared so hopefully she calms down. Otherwise I'm going to have to give her away. I can't have one fish bully my whole tank. I'm really surprised because I've read that rainbows are so peaceful.
