Does anyone own cupid cichlids?

Postby cichlidluvr82 » Tue Nov 21, 2017 9:25 pm

I'm just wondering if anyone here keeps cupid cichlids and do they do well in a community tank? Any info is much appreciated.

I used to keep them but I don't have any currently. They do quite well in a community tank.

I have some in a 70 gallon community tank. They are very nice community fish.

Got my cupid cichlid yesterday. He's a lot bigger than the website said. He's super cute and shy and doesn't bother with any of the other fish..... Hopefully he stays that way cause I already love him.

No, no pics. I can take some though. Seriously I love my Cupid cichlid. Only had him for 3 days and he's one of my favorite fish. He is so cute, calm and mellow. It's hard to believe he's a cichlid. He is so much bigger than all my other fish. He doesn't bother anyone.

I have a 45 gallon tall. 3 feet long but I'm upgrading to a 4 foot long acrylic tank soon. I currently have rainbows, platies, corydoras, Peacock gudgeons, sparkling gouramis, baby keyhole cichlids and my cupid.

Here's some pics of my sweet new guy. Can't wait until he's fully matured and colors up. He needs a name.

I've got another question for anyone who owns Cupid cichlids. I've got my male in a 55g community tank. He's so peaceful and doesn't bother anyone. It says they are best kept in pairs. If I got a female though, I'm worried about aggression during breeding season. If i have two males, will they be aggressive towards each other without a female to compete over????
