So, I need your guys opinion.

In my 110 gallon my Firemouth is bullying my Green Terrror. I added some Dither fishes and the Firemouth could care less. I just bought this 50 gallon, I was thinking of moving the Terror, or Firemouth there. I know If I move the terror there he needs to be alone. If the Firemouth gets moved can another firemouth be added to a 50? Or is it too small?

Also, to replace whichever fish I take out of the 110, which has my tiger o in it, I was thinking of adding another fish. Any recommendations? I was thinking maybe a Blood Parrot.

If I were you I would put the fm in the 50 and try another as they dont get too big. I would leave the 110 to your O and GT, and thats it. Although a GT grows slowly, it will likely be a 10in fish, and your O should be 12 or better, leaving the tank full and healthy. Not a blood parrot fan, they too can be bullies if they can get away with it.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Hm thanks. Thats one option I was thinking of as well. The Oscar chases the GT but not as bad as the FM. The FM chases the GT around the whole tank, then back to the cave the GT likes.

he may chase him now but it will not be like that for ever that is for sure ...


but I do like the idea of moving the fm to the 50 and getting another one and trying to breed them ;)

Do they show that much color early on? I'll try to get a picture of the one I have now and post it for you guys.
