I've been away from SA/CA cichlids for over a year now and currently have a group of 8 wild caught moba fronts. My hope was to breed them and make some $$$, but despite the fish being beautiful, they just lack that badass personality of CA cichlids. I'm debating on making the switch back and selling the fronts, but I'm not sold just yet. I have a 220, 6' tank which currently houses the fronts. I wanted a dovii or umbee, but I also don't want a single fish in the tank; at the same time I want some BIG fish. I am not interested in breeding, so no pairs. Fronts just grow too slow and my alpha is only 10" at 2-3yrs+, where I've had oscars get that size in under a year. So what should I do? Keep the fronts? or what would be a good mean group to try? I was thinking 5 big guys, maybe a midas, jag, texas, green terror, and ???? I just saw umbees at a local fish store for $5 (small) and this is what sparked my interest. Give me some ideas guys!
