I am just getting back into the hobby after about 10 years. Got a 55 for now to ease my fiancee into it (she's only had 1 goldfish, nothing like cichlids). I've got 8 peacocks (4 assorted, 2 I believe to be Baenschi, 2 Ngara flame tail) and a Lethrinops Red Cap hap - all males, from what I've been told though I think 1 of the assorted is a female. The 1 blood dragon is the boss, does a good amount of chasing but everyone else seems to get along. Is 9 enough for a 55 or should I maybe get a few more? I know they do better in 75g+ but I'm limited on space and permission from the missus. I think 9 is good but wouldn't mind getting one or two 3" males as well. Running an AC 110, though will likely get a canister or a 2nd 110 when they start getting bigger. Any suggestions/opinions welcome!
