so I got some more oscars in da house heehee. Oh how Ive missed these little eye balls






but now I have a dilemma, I was going to buy red spotted sevs but they did have a group of rainbow cichlids that looked really nice. 5 of them so would the rainbows be a better idea or buy sevs.

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

Have you got room for five? They are semi-aggressive so you may find having a group of them May cause problems.

With the 3sevs it says I will be overstocked but with the rainbows I'm understocked although it does recommend having a group of 8, I used to have 2 no issues I think they are hard enough to defend their selves but small enough not to be too aggressive to the Oscars.

rainbows will hold their ground - they are quite feisty. from my experience they get about 5-6 inches and if paired up...they get really aggressive. so hiding space is needed for them if oscar gets bigger. But a group is not needed.

I had a pair with my last Oscars and they were no where near as bad as the GEOS I had, like you say they just need their own space and I think this tank will have the room.

I love Sevs and have a dynamic duo of sev and oscar so I am biased when I say you should go for the sevs. Never kept rainbows.
