  • Interests:I LIKE KEEPING ALL DIFFERENT KINDS OF CICHLIDS. CURRENTLY I OWN THREE OSCARS AND ONE GREEN TERROR. I HAD A MIDAS BUT HE WAS TOO AGRESSIVE TOWARDS SOME OF MY OTHER FISH SO I HAD TO GET RID OF HIM. I ALSO HAVE A KNIFE FISH AN AFRICAN BUTTERFLY FISH A BLACK LACE ANGEL FISH AND AN EIGHT YEAR OLD COMET.

I HAVE ONE GREEN TERROR IN MY 55 GAL TANK. ITS THE ONLY ONE IN THERE RIGHT NOW BECAUSE I JUST STARTED THIS TANK. I WANTED A GREEN TERROR BECAUSE THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO REAL AGRESSIVE, BUT THE ONLY BAD THING IS THAT IM NOT FOR SURE WHAT OTHER TYPES OF CICHLIDS THAT I CAN PUT IN THERE WITH IT. I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE ONES I DO DECIDE TO PUT IN THERE WILL BE ABLE TO DEFEND ITSELF. I THOUGH VERY HARD ABOUT A FRONTOSA AND MAYBE A FIREMOUTH. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS IM NOTR FOR SURE HOW BIG THESE FISH GET WHEN THEY'RE FULL GROWN AND IF THEY ALL WILL BE ABL TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM EACH OTHER. I READ THAT THEY ARE ALL REALLY AGRESIVE. SO DOES THIS SOUND LIKE A GOOD IDEA OR SHOULD I PICK SOME OTHER FISH TO PUT IN HERE. DOES A GREEN TERROR REALLY LIVE UP TO ITS NAME?
THANKS,
DAMIEN

Oscars are good. My personal fav. fish. But i would reccomend a Jack Dempsey, a Plecostomus, a Red Terror, and a few feeder fish just so if they do decide to fight then they will take out the feeder fish. If they choose not to fight don't worry the feeder fish won't last long. If they do i would reccomend flushing them so that it doesn't harm your tank, with the ammonia produced. Oscars are awesome fish, but you will need a heavy duty filtration to house cichlids period , but mainly oscars. If you don't introduce the pleco immediately you will be unable to and it will be killed soon after placement. :ph34r:
