If you didn't buy the midas from a breeder, then it is more than 90% a midevil, which is a midas crossbreed with a red devil.

How big is the tank? That Tilapia (not an American cichlid) will overpower a lot of those fish. The only one who has a chance is that midevil.

nice fish but likewise ditch the RTC or only end with the RTC and also noted tilapia are great fish but not suited to this tank setup. I would drop and maybe get JD/texas but how big is your tank its hard to judge.

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

300LT is 79 US gallons......you have enough fish in there for a 2,000 gl aquarium, & I'm not even including that RT cat, which really aren't suited for home aquaria.... The nitrates have to be off the charts. Hopefully, you're changing 75% of that water daily.....You really only have room for that RD in there(see the protuding lips, that's A. Labiatus for sure), just asking for problems w/ that stocking level.
When you stated "very ameteur " you weren't kidding......

Why purchase something like a RT cat when you know you don't have room for it?? What exactly do you plan on doing w/ it once it outgrows that pitifully small aquarium??

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

also good to note that some people believe a RD need a 200gal to prevent aggression. This tank is going to turn in to a bloodbath if you dont find bigger one. I hope you do right thing.
