The elongatus (5-Spot Jewel) you speak of, I owned one too and it was a beast. Definitely one of the meanest on a pound-for-pound scale. But it was no match for the Hornet Cichlid (2" larger) that shared the tank. The Jewel stayed as far away from the Hornet, who beat him down, forcing me to turn the Jewel of to the fish store.roman_back said:hemichromis elongatus.. i had one and it killed 2 firemouths and almost killed one red devil
Pound for pound - has to be Neets. I've kept them with convicts, which are roughly the same size, and the Neets always dominated. In fact they dominated everything, big or small. Best kept in their own tank, or a very big tank, IME.aquariumjunky said:imagine a convict at 14inches? What would you consider more mean then that so pound for pound they are bad.
