I'm getting really bored with my 55 gallon community and I really wanna change it to cichlids. I have just 1 emperor 400 now for filtration. So I'm open to any suggestions of either a decent sized solo fish or a pair of cichlids that will breed that are decent sized.

Hey Josh,

What do you have in the tank now, and which fish are not holding your interest? There are some smaller cichlids which you might be able to incorporate into the tank as it is, but if you are looking for larger fish, then you may be limited to only 1 or 2 in the tank in the long term.

Sounds cool and I already have a O haha the best cichlid around:). All of them don't hold my interest anymore. 1 Red devil would be really cool. But just an idea what about 4 firemouths and some type of catfish or is there a pair of medium cichlids like 8-10 inches I could get that will breed?

Wouldn't a red devil get too large for a 55? A breeding pair of convicts will turn into ten million convicts in 5 weeks. Not even exaggerating.



:-p

Yah idk I just don't like the idea of a Oscar in a 55 gallon idk why. I do really like alibinos though. But a red devil I think would be neat. I already have convicts so I don't really want more. So what do you guys think is an Oscar a very good idea in a 55 I do really like alibinos.

As long as u keep up on the water changes, have limited decorations, and no tank mates yes a 55 gallon could house an oscar for life, and I love albinos too :)
