200L 50US gallon Green Terror Tank Mates

Postby 2huskys » Thu Jan 18, 2018 9:14 pm

Hi I have a fluval roma 200l tank which is about 100cm just over 3ft long. I currently have an asian bumblee catfish in it which I have had a good while and is slightly aggressive it killed all the mollys etc in my last tank. Today i added a green terror to the tank but I don't know what else I can add to it due to compatibility etc so please can I have some advice. I would like an electric blue jack dempsey(bit expensive) as well but I dont know if that would mean they would fight a lot. Is it better to get a group to ease out aggression rather than just 2 big cichlids? I would prefer more fish in the tank so would it instead be better to keep the green terror by itself and just get a shoal of something? Would angel fish just get killed by the GT? Ideally I would like the GT and the EBJD with a shoal of fish would this be possible? I understand these fish can get to around a foot in length but that takes a few years. I plan on having my own house this year so when that happens I will get a bigger tank or if worst comes to worst I could rehome them. I like red tail or rainbow sharks, angels, would they be suitable? I am going to add more wood and rocks to the tank as well as plants to create as many hideouts etc as possible. Thanks

Tank size is restrictive for medium sized cichlids. A big(10in) adult GT will be cramped in that tank by itself. Quick answer is no tankmates, footprint and volume are lacking.
1500 gallons of South and Central American cichlids. Some with a "wee" bit of attitude.
