    Rainbow Cichlids

    Anyone here keep Rainbow Cichlids (Archocentrus Multispinosus)?

    I am considering re-doing the 135g to be low tech plants only and much more fish focused.

    Hi Tom...Great fish... I’m keeping them with a large amount of various tetras and a few Bolivian rams without any issues (except the tetras devour their fry)... they get very pretty in breeding colors... brownish when not... not nearly as aggressive as other CA Cichlids either... I have a group of 4 or 5 in 100g planted tank - simple plants anubias, fern, val, dwarf sag... they will occasionally clear a spot of plants to build a nest - but nothing too destructive....

    Thank you! That is exactly what I was hoping for!
