Hello.

i cant really find the answer to this question.

is it even possible to keep them in a group as adults?

if yes, how big schould a tank be for 5-6 specimens (+ some other cichlids) ?

Here's an article written by a member. Trying to keep O's in a group setting would require a setup not generally seen in a residence.

ah... well thats not what i was hoping for.

mamixum size of the tank will probably be around 300-330gal (1225L) 8 by 2 by 2 ft (250cmx70x70cm)

still have (a lot) of time before it happens so i have some time to come up with something :)
