I have a 4'X2'X2' tank with a nicaraguensis pair in it. The male is about 7'', the feamle is 5ish.
My question is, what can I keep with them in there? Well, convicts seem to be an obvious choice but what else? :-? I was thinking Heros for a moment but maybe they wouldn't do well with the CA guys.

Well then.... hopefully 'Captain Creech' has been safely rehomed to the 55G? The 'Reign Of Terror' is at last... over?
:oops: Whew. :oops:
So, alrighty then. Here are some choices to consider, that I would consider to be compatible with your Nicaraguans and each other:
- OPTION 1 -
Add a Convict and Firemouth, plus Heros of choice - I like the Heros sp. 'Rotkeil', but the so-called Red Severum is another possibility I suppose.
*yawn*

- OPTION 2 -
Add a single 'Blue Sifter', 'Torquouise Cichlid', Astataheros robertsoni, plus a single (hopefully male) 'T-Bar Cichlid', Amatitlania sajica

- OPTION 3 -
Add 5 ''Yellow Convicts", Amitatlania nanoluteus, plus a single 'Elliots Cichlid', Thoricthys ellioti
"Wooot! PARTY TIME!!!"

BONUS: Add 7, Astyanx fasciatus 'mexicanus' Tetras (Very hard to find), to any of those stocking choice options as some very tough/mean CA dither fish for this community tank - and your New World Masterpiece will truly be done. :D
