Jack for some reason I cant log on to the web version on my phone its saying contact site admin.

I will reply here... no can do on my sons tank. The 150 is basically his as he picked almost all of the stock anyway lol. zeus is mine lol.

So we will keep dory but im not telling him yet (I love that fish glad you guys think it could work).

Im not concerned with aggression as we wont know until we try, bioload was my main concern but if I remove the rapid pack of idiots and move one of the cats to the other tank that should lessen the load.

Either gonna go with a bicourti, sev, choc, or nic. The bicourti is in the lead.

Bocourti are very colorful and get to a respectable size. I had one for a bit with porkchop but did not workout. The bocourti was mean to the pearsei. Very common issue with those who try to keep both. They are very similar in nature.

Say I go with the bicourti or choc it would the biggest adult fish would be the the bicourti/choc then the het at 8 or 9 inch dory is almost adult size and dusty probably 5 inch.

Sounds ok to me Frank. I'd go the choc if you're concerned at all about aggression, but the bocourti won't be at the level of the argentea at least.

That sounds about right. The bocourti will be the biggest but dont rule out the het staying 9"... I have a friend who had one get up to 12"

As long as there is a big difference in size it should be fine. The dominant bocourti should not feel threatened and the others should be fine.

My pearsei is from Gage at Cichlid Connection, and Im very happy with her. :)
