    Which is why I will always put a male Largemouth bass in the tank with it. To keep the blackbelt cichlid in line.πŸ˜πŸ‘

    I would say 4 auratus need a least a 55 gallon tank, and the smallest I would say for one by it self is a 30 gallon.

    Way, way too small. Not to say they wouldn't be alive in a 10 gallon, but that it is not recommended for them for good reasons. The store I work for suggests 29 gallons for just one of these.

    My dad got rid of mine. We only have one tank, so we had to combine mine, my dad's and my brother's. My red devil killed my dad's turquoise severum, and he was pissed.

    Nope..nevr do that frnd..both wil fight crazily

    You know everyone keeps saying blackbelt cichlids are moderately aggressive but on YouTube some people got 1 single male in a tank to make it like they are extremely aggressive. By when I say I'm putting a single male blackbelt cichlid in with a male (LARGEMOUTH BASS) then people want to say blackbelt cichlids are not that aggressive. WHICH IS IT.

so a little back story. I have a 265 gallon aquarium that i have 2 12 inch oscars a 10 inch and 7 inch jaguar cichlids that are a breeding pair a pacu and 6 silver dollars. well i wanted to add more fish so i set up my 30 gallon aquarium and put in there a Texas cichlid 2 lemon oscars a golden nugget pleco and a black ghost knife fish. well they were fine when i went to bed. i wake up this morning to find the Texas with the black ghost knife in his mouth swallowed about half way. so me being pissed off ( mind you the Texas is about 3-4 inches as well as the black ghost was too) because i got the Texas for free and the black ghost was 20 bucks. i took the Texas and threw him into the 265 gallon aquarium with the big guys basically survival of the fittest i suppose either he will survive or be dinner himself. MY other fish have all grown together since they were an inch big and have never once been fed live fish, so i assume they will not eat him maybe bully him out of their territory but not eat. ( its a new set up for the 265 so they really haven't got a territory down pack yet.) I may return him if he makes it through the work day till i get home tonight. i don't want to deal with more fish death due to eating each other. what do you guys think? if i kept it and the Texas got bigger do you think he will be an issue among the other tank mates?

I had a juvenile jaguar about 2-2 1/2 inch in a tank of about 145 liter with an Oscar, green terror, an ornate bichir, convict, panda parrot, 4 silver dollars and a pleco. I know I am going to land myself in trouble later when they grow up. Now the Oscar is dominant but no fighting had erupted so far except when the convict/ panda parrot couple is spawning. This is one of my six 145 liter tanks. All tanks are fully occupied and each has its own problem. Blame it on my over-enthusiasm in collecting cichlids.

I did not do what a responsible owner should do, and decided to keep 2 texas cichlids in a 2 gallon tank. One killed the other one, but the one that is left has been living for...well 8 years now. 8 years seems long to me, especially since I kept it in a 2 gallon tank. Nevertheless, I love this fish!

    2 gallon tank for a Texas cichlid? Incredible! I'm wondering how big it had grown to.
