you won't know until you try, I wouldn't try in anything less than 6 feet. Also, I would add in at least 2 tankmates at a time.

Im trying to get some info for a friend . He has a 90g tank and has the red devil in there by himself . He's been trying different cichlids but the Red devil Keeps killing them . So far he's tried severums , SD , JD, convicts and FM. All dead not to long after there put in the tank . This fish is only 6 inches long with a big attitude .

it won't work until he gets a longer tank then. 4FT is not a lot of space.

I wouldn't put anything in there with it. 90 gallons isn't enough.

Introduce the other fish into the big tank first. Try a salvini.

Thanks guy's I figured I'd see if anyone would know what would work. I know he was thinking of keeping his fish by himself in the tank If nothing would wrk. He don't want to spend anymore money on fish. He blew over 50 dollars so far in a week on fish. I don't think he will be to disappointed.

All I know on red devils is the very aggressive . I don't own one do to . Even though they are beautiful fish with a major attitude Lol.

Well you have a dominate fish that has established the tank as his nothing will work right now. You might have a chance in a 125-180 but I honestly wouldn't bother with tankmates for one of those its a very very low percentage that it will not go off one day & murder all its roommates.

That fish is destined to be a loner, which is fine. I have same sized Midevil in a 90, he does just fine with the tank to himself.


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