Ideas for a new tank mate

1622 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ksane
I recently lost a 4 year old Blue Acara :( and I'm looking to replace him with another cichlid. Any ideas on what might go well with my current fish? I would get another Blue Acara, but they are super hard to find where I live in Texas. I'm leaning towards picking up a green terror since they look similar to the Blue Acara. I'm just a little concerned about how aggressive a green terror would become.

I have a 220 gallon tank and I have listed the inhabitants below.

1 large Green Severum (5 years old and the king of my tank)
1 Keyhole Cichlid
1 Firemouth Cichlid
1 Convict Cichlid
2 Blood Parrots
1 Bala Shark
1 Pleco
6 clown loaches
5 Giant Danios
4 Australian Rainbow fish
2 corys

maybe a jack dempsey, or a texas. Something along those lines should work. Tank dimensions would help, though.
