Without knowing exactly what species are in your community tank, no one will be able to really give you an answer. What is the current stock list? Assuming it is either a hap or peacock, or mix of both, tank - then it would probably be okay. My guy is in with my haps/peacocks.

They can be placed with cichlids. I have a small one-(1 inch)- with my 2" juvies and it holds its own grounds. Can be feisty at times as well. 8)

Nope, I would never keep mine with mbuna, especially a tank full of males. Haps and peacocks are manageable, as they're more peaceful, but mbuna can be down right nasty. Too much for the casuarius to handle.
